  • Endogenous Urotensin II Selectively Modulates Erectile Function through eNOS. di Villa Bianca, Roberta d'Emmanuele; Mitidieri, Emma; Fusco, Ferdinando; D'Aiuto, Elena; Grieco, Paolo; Novellino, Ettore; Imbimbo, Ciro; Mirone, Vincenzo; Cirino, Giuseppe; Sorrentino, Raffaella // PLoS ONE;Feb2012, Vol. 7 Issue 2, p1 

    Background: Urotensin II (U-II) is a cyclic peptide originally isolated from the neurosecretory system of the teleost fish and subsequently found in other species, including man. U-II was identified as the natural ligand of a G-protein coupled receptor, namely UT receptor. U-II and UT receptor...

    A key step toward understanding the function of a brain circuit is to find its wiring diagram. New methods for optical stimulation and optical recording of neurons make it possible to map circuit connectivity on a very large scale. However, single synapses produce small responses that are...

    The present study verified that a simple division of Weight/Aperture (W/A) from information obtained from the individual cubes could describe perceived heaviness when pairs of cubic objects were haptically held one-by-one for comparison utilizing a thumb/index finger grasp. To test the effect of...

  • Synchronous Bursts on Scale-Free Neuronal Networks with Attractive and Repulsive Coupling. Qingyun Wang; Guanrong Chen; Perc, Matjaž // PLoS ONE;2011, Vol. 6 Issue 1, p1 

    This paper investigates the dependence of synchronization transitions of bursting oscillations on the information transmission delay over scale-free neuronal networks with attractive and repulsive coupling. It is shown that for both types of coupling, the delay always plays a subtle role in...

    Recent neurophysiological experiments have demonstrated a remarkable effect of attention on the underlying neural activity that suggests for the first time that information encoding is indeed actively influenced by attention. Single cell recordings show that attention reduces both the neural...

    Randomly connected recurrent networks of excitatory groups of neurons can possess a multitude of attractor states. When the internal excitatory synapses of these networks are depressing, the attractor states can be destabilized with increasing input. This leads to an itinerancy, where with...

    The visual world is complex and continuously changing. Yet, our brain transforms patterns of light falling on our retina into a coherent percept within a few hundred milliseconds. Possibly, low-level neural responses already carry substantial information to facilitate rapid characterization of...
