Reference Entry
A definition of the medical term neurovirus is presented. According to the "Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary," published by F.A. Davis Co., the term refers to a virus that has been modified by its growth in nervous tissue and used in preparing vaccines. The pronunciation of the term is also included as an additional reference.

    As a simple model of cortical tissue, we study a locally connected network of spiking neurons in the continuum limit of space and time. This is to be contrasted with the usual numerical simulations that discretize both of them. Refractoriness, noise, axonal delays, and the time course of...

Leo // Biological Cybernetics;Aug2009, Vol. 101 Issue 2, p81 

    Spike-timing-dependent plasticity (STDP) determines the evolution of the synaptic weights according to their pre- and post-synaptic activity, which in turn changes the neuronal activity. In this paper, we extend previous studies of input selectivity induced by (STDP) for single neurons to the...

    The ability to detect agency is fundamental for understanding the social world. Underlying this capacity are neural circuits that respond to patterns of intentional biological motion in the superior temporal sulcus and temporoparietal junction. Here we show that the brain's blood oxygenation...

    The stomatogastric nervous system (SNS) of Drosophila is a simply organized neural circuitry that innervates the anterior enteric system. Unlike the central and the peripheral nervous systems, the SNS derives from a compact epithelial anlage in which three invagination centers, each giving rise...
