Music Proficiency and Quantification of Absolute Pitch: A Large-Scale Study among Brazilian Musicians"
Oct 14, 2016
Absolute pitch (AP) is the ability to identify and name the pitch of a sound without external reference."
In this work, we consider seven different classification algorithms with the goal of finding a robust classifier that can be successfully trained on small datasets."
Acoustic signals have the potential for transmitting information fast across distances. Rats emit ultrasonic vocalizations of two distinct classes: “22-kHz” or “alarm” calls and “50-kHz” calls. "
A Naturalistic Assessment of the Organization of Children’s Memories Predicts Cognitive Functioning and Reading Ability"
Aug 05, 2016
To explore the relationship between memory and early school performance, we used graph theory to investigate memory reports from 76 children aged 6–8 years. The reports comprised autobiographical memories of events days to years past, and memories of novel images reported immediately after encoding."
In this paper, we describe a virtual environment for patients to engage in a playful therapeutic game for neuropsychomotor rehabilitation, based on the experience of the occupational therapy program of the Nucleus for Integrated Medical Assistance (NAMI) at the University of Fortaleza, Brazil. "
Chrna2-Martinotti Cells Synchronize Layer 5 Type A Pyramidal Cells via Rebound Excitation"
Mar 22, 2017
Chrna2-Martinotti cells participate in defined cortical circuits and can synchronize pyramidal cells in a frequency-dependent manner."
Activity-Independent Effects of CREB on Neuronal Survival and Differentiation during Mouse Cerebral Cortex Development"
Jan 18, 2017
Neuronal survival and morphological maturation depends on the action of the transcription factor calcium responsive element binding protein (CREB), which regulates expression of several target genes in an activity-dependent manner. "
On cross-frequency phase-phase coupling between theta and gamma oscillations in the hippocampus"
Jan 10, 2017
Phase-locking of hippocampal theta and gamma waves has been proposed to support memory formation, but an analysis using robust statistical methods finds no convincing evidence for the phenomenon."
Selective interhemispheric circuits account for a cardinal bias in spontaneous activity within early visual areas"
Nov 08, 2016
Ongoing brain activity exhibits patterns resembling neural ensembles co activated by stimulation or task performance. "
Sleep paralysis (SP) is a dissociative state that occurs mainly during awakening."
