"Respiration-Entrained Brain Rhythms Are Global but Often Overlooked"

We summarize recent evidence showing that nasal respiration entrains oscillations at the same frequency as breathing in several regions of the rodent brain.


Specifc Phospholipids Regulate the Acquisition of Neuronal and Astroglial Identities in Post-Mitotic Cells"
Jan 17, 2018

Embryonic stem cell diferentiation in specifc cell lineages is a major issue in cell biology, and particularly, in regenerative medicine. Neural stem cells (NSCs) have the potential for self-renewal and diferentiation into neurons, astrocytes and oligodendrocytes."

Live Imaging Followed by Single Cell Tracking to Monitor Cell Biology and the Lineage Progression of Multiple Neural Populations"
Jan 17, 2018

Understanding the mechanisms that control critical biological events of neural cell populations, such as proliferation, differentiation, or cell fate decisions, will be crucial to design therapeutic strategies for many diseases affecting the nervous system."

The interpretation of dream meaning: Resolving ambiguity using Latent Semantic Analysis in a small corpus of text"
Nov 07, 2017

Computer-based dreams content analysis relies on word frequencies within predefined categories in order to identify different elements in text."

The language of geometry: Fast comprehension of geometrical primitives and rules in human adults and preschoolers"
Oct 24, 2017

Here, we ask whether a “geometrical language” with recursive embedding also underlies the human ability to encode sequences of spatial locations. "

4.10 – Multiple Stages of Memory Formation and Persistence"
Oct 16, 2017

The idea that memories are not made instantly after learning but need to undergo a time-dependent, metabolically active complex consolidation process before they can be stably stored has dominated the neuroscience of learning and memory for decades. "

Respiration-Entrained Brain Rhythms Are Global but Often Overlooked"
Apr 20, 2018

We summarize recent evidence showing that nasal respiration entrains oscillations at the same frequency as breathing in several regions of the rodent brain."

Callosal Influence on Visual Receptive Fields Has an Ocular, an Orientation-and Direction Bias"
Apr 17, 2018

One leading hypothesis on the nature of visual callosal connections (CC) is that they replicate features of intrahemispheric lateral connections. However, CC act also in the central part of the binocular visual field. "

Motion contrast in primary visual cortex: a direct comparison of single neuron and population encoding"
Feb 15, 2018

We analyzed firing rates and phase-locking to low-gamma frequency in single cells and neuronal assemblies. Motion contrast was reflected in all measures but in semi-independent populations."

Extracting information from the shape and spatial distribution of evoked potentials."
Jan 31, 2018

Over 90 years after its first recording, scalp electroencephalography (EEG) remains one ofthe most widely used techniques in human neuroscience research, in particular for the study of event-related potentials (ERPs)."

Subtle Alterations in Spatial Memory Induced by Amyloid Peptides Infusion in Rats"
Jan 30, 2018

In the present study, we evaluated the effects of a low-dose 15-day long treatment with Ab peptides on spatial and non-spatial strategies of rats tested in the Barnes maze. Ab peptides (0.5 mL/site/day; 30 pmoL solution of Ab1–40:Ab1–42 10:1) or saline were bilaterally infused into the CA1 (on the first treatment day) and intraventricularly (on the following 15 days) in 6-month-old Wistar male rats."


Semana do Cérebro: 7° edição acontece entre 11 e 16 de março

Acampamento do MST, comunidade quilombola e espaços públicos de Natal e Serra Negra do Norte receberão oficinas e apresentações."

ICe e MCC realizam Oficina de Ciências e Arte

Coordenada pelo professor Claudio Queiroz, a oficina vai discutir o que é a eletricidade, suas aplicações e desafios nos dias atuais e como ela vem sendo utilizada para movimentar as coisas do mundo. Para isso, serão realizadas algumas experiências, além da construção de objetos geradores e consumidores de eletricidade utilizando sucata eletrônica."

Especialistas em Direito e Saúde discutem regulamentação da maconha

As implicações e benefícios da regulamentação da cannabis e seus derivados voltam a ser abordadas no 2º Fórum Delta9. O evento, aberto ao público, é gratuito e será realizado no próximo dia 17, das 10h às 17h, no auditório do Instituto Ágora da Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN)."
