  • On cross-frequency phase-phase coupling between theta and gamma oscillations in the hippocampus

    01/10/2017
    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.
  • Synchronization by Distal Dendrite-targeting Interneurons - phenomenon, concept and reality -

    12/01/2016
  • Selective interhemispheric circuits account for a cardinal bias in spontaneous activity within early visual areas

    11/03/2016
    Ongoing brain activity exhibits patterns resembling neural ensembles co activated by stimulation or task performance.
  • Sleep Paralysis in Brazilian Folklore and Other Cultures: A Brief Review

    10/24/2016
    Sleep paralysis (SP) is a dissociative state that occurs mainly during awakening.
  • Music Proficiency and Quantification of Absolute Pitch: A Large-Scale Study among Brazilian Musicians

    10/14/2016
    Absolute pitch (AP) is the ability to identify and name the pitch of a sound without external reference.
  • O papel de oscilações beta2 e de interneurônios OLMa2 da região CA1 do hipocampo de camundongos na memória de reconhecimento de objetos

    10/04/2016
  • ASPECTOS COMPORTAMENTAIS E ELETROFISIOLÓGICOS DA PERCEPÇÃO DE ALTURAS SONORAS: UM ESTUDO SOBRE O “OUVIDO ABSOLUTO”

  • Machine Learning Algorithms for Automatic Classification of Marmoset Vocalizations

    09/29/2016
    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.
  • Rats Synchronize Locomotion with Ultrasonic Vocalizations at the Subsecond Time Scale

    09/29/2016
    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

    08/05/2016
    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...
  • S100B protein and neuron-specific enolase as predictors of cognitive dysfunction after coronary artery bypass graft surgery: a prospective observational study

    07/15/2016
    The study aims to evaluate the association between POCD and serum levels of S100B and NSE after coronary artery bypass grafting surgery (CABG).
  • Novel Virtual Environment for Alternative Treatment of Children with Cerebral Palsy

    07/12/2016
    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,...
