Adeno-associated virus (AAV) vectors in cancer gene therapy.

Related Articles Adeno-associated virus (AAV) vectors in cancer gene therapy. J Control Release. 2016 Oct 28;240:287-301 Authors: Santiago-Ortiz JL, Schaffer DV Abstract Gene delivery vectors based on adeno-associated virus (AAV) have been utilized in a large number of gene therapy clinical trials, which have demonstrated their strong safety profile and increasingly their therapeutic efficacy for […]

Role for Visual Experience in the Development of Direction-Selective Circuits.

Related Articles Role for Visual Experience in the Development of Direction-Selective Circuits. Curr Biol. 2016 May 23;26(10):1367-75 Authors: Bos R, Gainer C, Feller MB Abstract Visually guided behavior can depend critically on detecting the direction of object movement. This computation is first performed in the retina where direction is encoded by direction-selective ganglion cells (DSGCs) […]

Related Articles Associations between [18F]AV1451 tau PET and CSF measures of tau pathology in a clinical sample. Neurology. 2017 Dec 27;: Authors: La Joie R, Bejanin A, Fagan AM, Ayakta N, Baker SL, Bourakova V, Boxer AL, Cha J, Karydas A, Jerome G, Maass A, Mensing A, Miller ZA, O’Neil JP, Pham J, Rosen HJ, […]

Beyond eye gaze: What else can eyetracking reveal about cognition and cognitive development?

Related Articles Beyond eye gaze: What else can eyetracking reveal about cognition and cognitive development? Dev Cogn Neurosci. 2017 Jun;25:69-91 Authors: Eckstein MK, Guerra-Carrillo B, Miller Singley AT, Bunge SA Abstract This review provides an introduction to two eyetracking measures that can be used to study cognitive development and plasticity: pupil dilation and spontaneous blink […]

In vivo genome editing improves motor function and extends survival in a mouse model of ALS.

Related Articles In vivo genome editing improves motor function and extends survival in a mouse model of ALS. Sci Adv. 2017 Dec;3(12):eaar3952 Authors: Gaj T, Ojala DS, Ekman FK, Byrne LC, Limsirichai P, Schaffer DV Abstract Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal and incurable neurodegenerative disease characterized by the progressive loss of motor neurons […]

Effects of Medial Orbitofrontal Cortex Lesions on Self-Control in Intertemporal Choice.

Related Articles Effects of Medial Orbitofrontal Cortex Lesions on Self-Control in Intertemporal Choice. Curr Biol. 2016 Oct 10;26(19):2625-2628 Authors: Peters J, D’Esposito M Abstract Many decisions involve a trade-off between the temporal proximity of a reward and its magnitude. A range of clinical conditions are associated with poor self-control during such intertemporal choices, such that smaller […]

Histone demethylase LSD1 regulates hematopoietic stem cells homeostasis and protects from death by endotoxic shock.

Related Articles Histone demethylase LSD1 regulates hematopoietic stem cells homeostasis and protects from death by endotoxic shock. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2017 Dec 20;: Authors: Wang J, Saijo K, Skola D, Jin C, Ma Q, Merkurjev D, Glass CK, Rosenfeld MG Abstract Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) maintain a quiescent state during homeostasis, […]

Neither Cholinergic Nor Dopaminergic Enhancement Improve Spatial Working Memory Precision in Humans.

Related Articles Neither Cholinergic Nor Dopaminergic Enhancement Improve Spatial Working Memory Precision in Humans. Front Neural Circuits. 2017;11:94 Authors: Harewood Smith AN, Challa JA, Silver MA Abstract Acetylcholine and dopamine are neurotransmitters that play multiple important roles in perception and cognition. Pharmacological cholinergic enhancement reduces excitatory receptive field size of neurons in marmoset primary visual […]

Increasing extracellular H2O2 produces a bi-phasic response in intracellular H2O2, with peroxiredoxin hyperoxidation only triggered once the cellular H2O2-buffering capacity is overwhelmed.

Related Articles Increasing extracellular H2O2 produces a bi-phasic response in intracellular H2O2, with peroxiredoxin hyperoxidation only triggered once the cellular H2O2-buffering capacity is overwhelmed.
