  • Requirement for BDNF in the Reconsolidation of Fear Extinction

    06/03/2015
    BDNF is required for reconsolidation of fear extinction memory.
  • Stress Response II: Resilience and vulnerability

    06/01/2015
  • Input and Output Gain Modulation by the Lateral Interhemispheric Network in Early Visual Cortex

    05/27/2015
    Neurons in the cerebral cortex are constantly integrating different types of inputs. Dependent on their origin, these inputs can be modulatory in many ways and, for example, change the neuron's responsiveness, sensitivity, or selectivity.
  • Synaptic Homeostasis and Restructuring across the Sleep-Wake Cycle

    05/27/2015
    Sleep is critical for hippocampus-dependent memory consolidation. However, the underlying mechanisms of synaptic plasticity are poorly understood. The central controversy is on whether long-term potentiation (LTP) takes a role during sleep and which would be its specific effect on memory....
  • Interplay of environmental signals and progenitor diversity on fate specification of cortical GABAergic neurons

    05/13/2015
    Cortical GABAergic interneurons constitute an extremely diverse population of cells organized in a well-defined topology of precisely interconnected cells.
  • Sexual dysfunction in obese women is more affected by psychological domains than that of non-obese

  • Endocrine and Cognitive Adaptations to Cope with Stress in Immature Common Marmosets (Callithrix jacchus): Sex and Age Matter

    04/01/2015
  • Astrocyte heterogeneity in the brain: from development to disease

    03/25/2015
    In this review, we focused on astrocyte heterogeneity in terms of their morphological, protein expression and functional aspects, and debate in a historical perspective the diversity encountered in glial rogenitors and how they may reflect mature astrocyte heterogeneity.
  • Specification of excitatory neurons in the developing cerebral cortex: progenitor diversity and environmental influences

    03/25/2015
    The mature cerebral cortex harbors a heterogeneous population of glutamatergic neurons, organized into a highly intricate histological architecture. Classically, this mixed population of neurons was thought to be generated sequentially from a seemingly homogenous group of progenitors under the influence...
  • Experience-dependent upregulation of multiple plasticity factors in the hippocampus during early REM sleep

    03/17/2015
    Sleep is beneficial to learning, but the underlying mechanisms remain controversial. The synaptic homeostasis hypothesis (SHY) proposes that the cognitive function of sleep is related to a generalized rescaling of synaptic weights to intermediate levels, due to a passive downregulation of plasticity...
  • Stress response: I. Homeostasis and allostasis theory

    03/01/2015
  • Sabores em ondas cerebrais

    12/01/2014
    Cientistas tentam entender como o cérebro processa informações por meio da atividade individual dos neurônios. Pesquisas recentes mostram como o cérebro apreende e decodifica o que chamamos de realidade.
