    Abstract. Due to the limited computational capacity of visual systems and the limited capacity to perform several mental operations at once, animals only select a small proportion of the stimuli available at any one time. It remains to be clarified how this process is related to the...

Particular logical structures and choices of invariants within those structures narrow the ranges of perceptions...

    The nervous system is a closed system but, at the same time, is very dynamic and able to adapt, reorganize and modify the biological, biochemical and physiological mechanisms that it poses. This ability is called neuroplasticity and implies changes in neural structures such as axonal...

    Introduction A fundamental goal in systems neuroscience is to understand the mechanisms underlying the distributed nature of sensorimotor encoding by populations of neurons. In this work, we examine to what extent the existence of task-dependent functional connectivity between cortical neurons...

    Human motor adaptation to novel environments is often modeled by a basis function network that transforms desired movement properties into estimated forces. This network employs a layer of nodes that have fixed broad tunings that generalize across the input domain. Learning is achieved by...

    Motor and vocal tics are the core symptom of Tourette syndrome (TS). Tic generation seems to develop throughout the known motor pathways. This review focuses on functional neuroimaging in order to check this assumption. Also it elucidates the alterations and interactions of motor networks in TS...
