The experiences induced by psychedelics share a wide variety of subjective features, related to the complex changes in perception and cognition induced by this class of drugs."
BDNF is required for reconsolidation of fear extinction memory. "
Sleep is critical for hippocampus-dependent memory consolidation. However, the underlying mechanisms of synaptic plasticity are poorly understood. The central controversy is on whether long-term potentiation (LTP) takes a role during sleep and which would be its specific effect on memory."
Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder clinically characterized by deficits in communication, lack of social interaction and repetitive behaviors with restricted interests."
The complexity of human communication has often been taken as evidence that our language reflects a true evolutionary leap, bearing little resemblance to any other animal communication system."
An essential task of the auditory system is to discriminate between different communication 33 signals, such as vocalizations. In everyday acoustic environments, the auditory system needs 34 to be capable of performing the discrimination under different acoustic distortions of 35 vocalizations."
Psychiatry lacks the objective clinical tests routinely used in ther specializations. Novel computerized methods to characterize complex behaviors such as speech could be used to identify and predict sychiatric illness in individuals."
This computational work shows that schizophrenia phenotypes can be produced by a myriad of causes at the molecular and circuit levels, which suggests that unified explanations for either the full syndrome or its behavioral and network endophenotypes are unlikely to be expected at the genetic and molecular levels."
