  • OSCILAÇÕES NEURAIS SINCRONIZANDO CIRCUITOS OLFATÓRIOS E HIPOCAMPAIS

  • ESTUDOS ELETROFISIOLÓGICOS NO HIPOCAMPO – DESENVOLVENDO NOVAS TÉCNICAS DE ANÁLISE E INVESTIGANDO A CODIFICAÇÃO NEURAL

  • The maturation of speech structure in psychosis is resistant to formal education

    12/10/2018
    Here we report that a graph-theoretical computational analysis of verbal reports from subjects spanning 6 decades of age and 2 decades of education reveals asymptotic changes over time that depend more on education than age. In typical subjects, short-range recurrence and lexical...
  • Characterizing speed cells in the rat hippocampus

    11/13/2018
    Here we investigated speed-correlated firing in the hippocampus. We show that CA1 has speed cells that are stable across contexts, position in space, and time.
  • Evidence of müller glia conversion into retina ganglion cells using neurogenin2

    11/12/2018
    Degenerative retinopathies are the leading causes of irreversible visual impairment in the elderly, affecting hundreds of millions of patients. Müller glia cells (MGC), the main type of glia found in the vertebrate retina, can resume proliferation in the rodent adult injured retina...
  • Non-visual exploration of novel objects increases the levels of plasticity factors in the rat primary visual cortex

    10/23/2018
    Our results suggest that non-visual exploration induces the activation of immediate-early genes in V1 cortex, which is suggestive of cross-modal processing in this area. Besides, the increase in the number of neurons labeled with pCaKMII may signal a condition promoting synaptic...
  • Computational models of memory consolidation and long-term synaptic plasticity during sleep

    10/23/2018
    Research on the neurobiology of sleep and the mechanisms of long-term synaptic plasticity has provided data in support of various theories of how brain activity during sleep affects long-term synaptic plasticity.
  • Hormonal Correlates Of Behavioural Profiles And Coping Strategies In Captive Capuchin Monkeys (Sapajus Libidinosus)

    10/01/2018
    In this study, we tested the hypothesis that individual differences in behavioural profiles correlate to differences in stress-related behaviours and hormonal levels in captive brown capuchin monkeys (Sapajus libidinosus).
  • Recording Day and Night: Advice for New Investigators in the Sleep and Memory Field

    09/18/2018
    The investigation of the sleep-dependent mechanisms of memory processing and consolidation is largely based on the electrophysiological recording of action potentials (spikes), local field potentials (LFPs), and muscle activity from freely behaving rodents.
  • Ventral hippocampal OLM cells control type 2 theta oscillations and response to predator odor.

    09/10/2018
    Here, we show that optogenetic activation of oriens-lacunosum moleculare (OLM) interneurons in the ventral hippocampus drives type 2 theta. Moreover, we found that type 2 theta generation is associated with increased risk-taking behavior in response to predator odor.
  • Salicylate induces anxiety-like behaviour and slow theta oscillation and abolishes the relationship between running speed and fast theta oscillation frequency

    08/28/2018
    We found that animals treated with salicylate moved dramatically less than saline treated animals.
