  • O papel de oscilações beta2 e de interneurônios OLMa2 da região CA1 do hipocampo de camundongos na memória de reconhecimento de objetos

  • 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).
  • 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...
  • A Respiration-Coupled Rhythm in the Rat Hippocampus Independent of Theta and Slow Oscillations

    05/11/2016
    Hippocampal respiration rhythm in rats. This work shows that the hippocampus produces two low-frequency rhythms at nearby frequencies: one that couples to respiration and another that is coupled to the neocortex. The results support a role for brain oscillations in connecting distant brain...
  • 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...
  • 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...
