High-throughput synapse-resolving two-photon fluorescence microendoscopy for deep-brain volumetric imaging in vivo.

High-throughput synapse-resolving two-photon fluorescence microendoscopy for deep-brain volumetric imaging in vivo. Elife. 2019 Jan 03;8: Authors: Meng G, Liang Y, Sarsfield S, Jiang WC, Lu R, Dudman JT, Aponte Y, Ji N Abstract Optical imaging has become a powerful tool for studying brains in vivo. The opacity of adult brains makes microendoscopy, with an optical […]

A Theory of Sequence Indexing and Working Memory in Recurrent Neural Networks.

Related Articles A Theory of Sequence Indexing and Working Memory in Recurrent Neural Networks. Neural Comput. 2018 06;30(6):1449-1513 Authors: Frady EP, Kleyko D, Sommer FT Abstract To accommodate structured approaches of neural computation, we propose a class of recurrent neural networks for indexing and storing sequences of symbols or analog data vectors. These networks with […]

Direct Evidence for Prediction Signals in Frontal Cortex Independent of Prediction Error.

Direct Evidence for Prediction Signals in Frontal Cortex Independent of Prediction Error. Cereb Cortex. 2018 Dec 22;: Authors: Dürschmid S, Reichert C, Hinrichs H, Heinze HJ, Kirsch HE, Knight RT, Deouell LY Abstract Predictive coding (PC) has been suggested as one of the main mechanisms used by brains to interact with complex environments. PC theories […]

OCT Angiography and Cone Photoreceptor Imaging in Geographic Atrophy. Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci. 2018 Dec 03;59(15):5985-5992 Authors: Qin J, Rinella N, Zhang Q, Zhou H, Wong J, Deiner M, Roorda A, Porco TC, Wang RK, Schwartz DM, Duncan JL Abstract Purpose: To compare cone spacing and choriocapillaris (CC) perfusion adjacent to geographic atrophy (GA) in […]

The perceived stability of scenes: serial dependence in ensemble representations.

Related Articles The perceived stability of scenes: serial dependence in ensemble representations. Sci Rep. 2017 05 16;7(1):1971 Authors: Manassi M, Liberman A, Chaney W, Whitney D Abstract We are continuously surrounded by a noisy and ever-changing environment. Instead of analyzing all the elements in a scene, our visual system has the ability to compress an […]

Overrepresentation of extreme events in decision making reflects rational use of cognitive resources.

Related Articles Overrepresentation of extreme events in decision making reflects rational use of cognitive resources. Psychol Rev. 2018 01;125(1):1-32 Authors: Lieder F, Griffiths TL, Hsu M Abstract People’s decisions and judgments are disproportionately swayed by improbable but extreme eventualities, such as terrorism, that come to mind easily. This article explores whether such availability biases can […]

Activity-based sensing fluorescent probes for iron in biological systems.

Related Articles Activity-based sensing fluorescent probes for iron in biological systems. Curr Opin Chem Biol. 2018 04;43:113-118 Authors: Aron AT, Reeves AG, Chang CJ Abstract Iron is an essential nutrient for life, and its capacity to cycle between different oxidation states is required for processes spanning oxygen transport and respiration to nucleotide synthesis and epigenetic […]
