    Abnormalities in the interactions between functionally linked brain regions have been suggested to be associated with the clinical impairments observed in autism spectrum disorders (ASD). We investigated functional connectivity within the limbic system during face identification; a primary...

  • Sex-specific positive and negative consequences of avoidance training during childhood on adult active avoidance learning in mice. Spröwitz, Almuth; Bock, Jörg; Braun, Katharina // Frontiers in Behavioral Neuroscience;Oct2013, Vol. 7, p1 

    In humans and animals cognitive training during childhood plays an important role in shaping neural circuits and thereby determines learning capacity later in life. Using a negative feedback learning paradigm, the two-way active avoidance (TWA) learning, we aimed to investigate in mice (i) the...

  • The amusic brain: in tune, out of key, and unaware. Peretz, Isabelle; Brattico, Elvira; Järvenpää, Miika; Tervaniemi, Mari // Brain: A Journal of Neurology;May2009, Vol. 132 Issue 5, p1277 

    Like language, music engagement is universal, complex and present early in life. However, ∼4% of the general population experiences a lifelong deficit in music perception that cannot be explained by hearing loss, brain damage, intellectual deficiencies or lack of exposure. This musical...

  • The cerebellum: from development to structural complexity and motor learning. Martinez, Salvador // Frontiers in Neuroanatomy;Nov2014, Vol. 8, p1 

    The article focuses on the association between cerebellum and motor learning and the complexity of the cerebral function. Other topics discussed include the functional mechanisms of cerebellar circuits and the studies on the neural progenitors of cerebellar GABAergic neurons and the role of...

  • UC San Diego Biologists Discover That Nerve Activity, Not Just Genetics Controls Kinds of Neurotransmitters Produced.  // Ascribe Newswire: Medicine;6/8/2004, p81 

    Neurobiologists at the University of California, San Diego have discovered that altering electrical activity in nerve cells can change the chemical messengers the cells generate to communicate with other cells, a finding that may one day lead to new treatments for mood and learning disorders. In...

  • Chromosome analysis: what and when to request. Sharkey, F. H.; Maher, E.; Fitzpatrick, D. R. // Archives of Disease in Childhood;Dec2005, Vol. 90 Issue 12, p1264 

    Chromosome abnormalities have long been recognised as an important cause of learning disability and multiple malformation syndromes; 0.8% of live born infants have numerical or structural chromosomal anomalies resulting in an abnormal phenotype. The identification of such anomalies is important,...

  • mucolipidoses. Peters, Michael // BMA A-Z Family Medical Encyclopedia;2004, p518 

    An encyclopedia entry for "mucolipidoses" is presented. It refers to a group of rare metabolic disorders characterized by an abnormal accumulation of lipids and substances called mucopolysaccharides in cells due to a particular enzyme deficiency. People with the disorder, particularly children...
