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."

Chronic nicotine attenuates behavioral and synaptic plasticity impairments in a streptozotocin model of Alzheimer's disease."
May 13, 2017

Brain glucose metabolism is altered in sporadic Alzheimer's disease (sAD), whose pathologies are reproduced in rodents by intracerebroventricular (icv) infusion of streptozotocin (STZ) in subdiabetogenic doses. "

Selective post-training time window for memory consolidation interference of cannabidiol into the prefrontal cortex: Reduced dopaminergic modulation and immediate gene expression in limbic circuits."
May 12, 2017

The prefrontal cortex (PFC), amygdala and hippocampus display a coordinated activity during acquisition of associative fear memories."

Dopamine Modulates Delta-Gamma Phase-Amplitude Coupling in the Prefrontal Cortex of Behaving Rats"
May 10, 2017

Dopamine release and phase-amplitude cross-frequency coupling (CFC) have independently been implicated in prefrontal cortex (PFC) functioning."

Selective entrainment of gamma subbands by different slow network oscillations"
May 04, 2017

Respiration-induced oscillations and the theta rhythm modulate different gamma frequencies, suggesting that the brain uses different frequency channels for transferring different types of information."

Thought disorder measured as random speech structure classifies negative symptoms and schizophrenia diagnosis 6 months in advance"
Apr 18, 2017

This analysis relies mostly on connectedness, a structural feature of speech that is anti-correlated with negative symptoms."
