  • Motor Coordination Correlates with Academic Achievement and Cognitive Function in Children

    03/15/2016
    The relationship between exercise and cognition is an important topic of research that only recently began to unravel.
  • Live Imaging of Adult Neural Stem Cells in Rodents

    03/09/2016
    Adult Neural Stem Cells (NSC) in the mouse subventricular zone (SVZ) tracked by retroviral labeling during embryonic development (GFP, green) and identified by the proliferative (Ki67, blue) and astrocyte-specific marker (GFAP, red).
  • Psychosis and the Control of Lucid Dreaming

    03/09/2016
    Dreaming and psychosis share important features, such as intrinsic sense perceptions independent of external stimulation, and a general lack of criticism that is associated with reduced frontal cerebral activity.
  • Variation of glucocorticoid metabolite levels is associated with survival demands in immature and reproductive demands in adult wild black capuchins (Sapajus nigritus)

    03/01/2016
  • REPROGRAMMING OF DISTINCT ASTROGLIAL POPULATIONS INTO SPECIFIC NEURONAL SUBTYPES IN VITRO AND IN VIVO

    02/29/2016
  • Impaired theta-gamma coupling in APP-deficient mice

    02/26/2016
    The amyloid precursor protein (APP) is critically involved in the pathophysiology of Alzheimer’s disease, but its physiological functions remain elusive. This work shows that lack of APP reduces oscillatory coupling in voltage recordings from specific brain regions, despite not affecting the amplitude...
  • Do lateral intrinsic and callosal axons have comparable actions in early visual areas ?

    02/16/2016
    By comparing data from lateral and feedback circuits, we conclude that visual callosal connections are more similar to intrinsic connections and can be interpreted as extending this circuit across the hemispheres.
  • Physiological and behavioral responses to routine procedures in captive common marmosets (Callithrix jacchus)

    02/01/2016
  • The influence of interhemispheric connections on ongoing and evoked orientation preference maps and spiking activity

    01/29/2016
    In the primary visual cortex, neurons with similar physiological features are clustered together in columns extending through all six cortical layers. These columns form modular orientation preference maps.
  • On the photovoltaic effect in local field potential recordings

    01/19/2016
    We found that light leads to several artifacts that resemble genuine LFP features in animals with no opsin expression, such as stereotyped peaks at the power spectrum, phase shifts across different recording channels, coupling between low and high oscillation frequencies, and sharp...
  • Hippocampal Respiration-Driven Rhythm Distinct from Theta Oscillations in Awake Mice

    01/18/2016
    This work demonstrates that the hippocampus of awake mice produces slow oscillations that are entrained by nasal respiration. The rhythm is close in frequency to, but distinct from, classical theta oscillations. The results suggest that respiration-coupled oscillations aid the exchange of information...
  • INVESTIGANDO FENÓTIPOS COMPORTAMENTAIS E ELETROFISIOLÓGICOS ASSOCIADOS AO ESTRESSE SOCIAL
