  • Short term changes in the proteome of human cerebral organoids induced by 5-MeO-DMT

    10/13/2017
    Here we used shotgun mass spectrometry to explore proteomic differences induced by 5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine (5-MeO-DMT) on human cerebral organoids. Out of the 6,728 identified proteins, 934 were found differentially expressed in 5-MeO-DMT-treated cerebral organoids.
  • Multiple Stages of Memory Formation and Persistence

    10/13/2017
    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.
  • Sleep, Synaptic Plasticity, and Memory

    10/06/2017
    The mechanisms underlying the intimate connection between sleep and learning are becoming increasingly clear.
  • Effect of Chronic Stress during Adolescence in Prefrontal Cortex Structure and Function

    10/01/2017
    We speculate upon the risks of prolonged exposure to stressful environments in human adolescents and the possibility of stunted development of executive functions.
  • Asymmetry of the temporal code for space by hippocampal place cells

    09/13/2017
    Here we show that the spike timing of place cells couples to theta phase before major increases in firing rate, anticipating the animal’s entrance into the classical, rate-based place field.
  • Place and grid cells in a loop: implications for memory function and spatial coding

    09/11/2017
    Based on the anatomy of the entorhinal-hippocampal circuitry, we constructed a model of place and grid cells organized in a loop to investigate their mutual influence in the establishment of their codes for space.
  • Comparison of techniques used for functional evaluation of pelvic floor muscles

    09/01/2017
    Objective: To identify and discuss techniques for evaluation of pelvic floor muscles (PFM) focusing on the most used and accessible techniques in health care.
  • Olfactory bulb drives respiration-coupled beta oscillations in the rat hippocampus

    08/22/2017
    We find that beta oscillations simultaneously appear in HPC and OB and phase-lock across structures. Moreover, Granger causality analysis reveals that OB beta activity drives HPC beta.
  • Nasal respiration entrains delta-frequency oscillations in the prefrontal cortex and hippocampus of rodents

    08/22/2017
    We further showed that respiration-entrained LFP oscillations were abolished by tracheostomy and restored by rhythmic air puffing into the nasal cavity; moreover, in the hippocampus, RR had the maximum amplitude in the dentate gyrus hilus, the anatomical site where olfactory inputs impinge...
  • Electrophysiological evidence that the retrosplenial cortex displays a strong and specific activation phased with hippocampal theta during paradoxical (REM) sleep

    08/18/2017
    It is widely accepted that cortical neurons are similarly more activated during waking and paradoxical sleep (PS, aka REM) than during slow wave sleep (SWS).
  • Unveiling Fast Field Oscillations through Comodulation

    08/07/2017
    Comodulation analysis unveils four different types of fast LFP activity coupled to theta: two oscillations within the traditional gamma band, HFOs, and spike-leaked activity.
  • Common Marmosets: A Potential Translational Animal Model of Juvenile Depression
