    The neural implementation of concepts, as postulated by Hebb (1949), has become obsolete due to the advances in neuroscience during the last half-century, but the basic idea revolutionized psychology, and remains valuable. This paper charts changes that have been imposed on Hebb's cell assembly...

    The article presents a study which examines the mechanism involved in the functional organization and properties of excitatory synapses formed by Substantia gelatinosa (SG) excitatory interneurons (EINs). It is said that most unmyelinated primary afferents conclude and the central nociceptive...

    Neuronal plasticity along the pathway for sensory transmission including the spinal cord and cortex plays an important role in chronic pain, including inflammatory and neuropathic pain. While recent studies indicate that microglia in the spinal cord are involved in neuropathic pain, a systematic...

    Abstract. The existence and utilization of an internal representation of the controlled object is one of the most important features of the functioning of neural motor control systems. This study demonstrates that this property already exists at the level of the spinal motor control system...

    Ca(2+) signals have profound and varied effects on growth cone motility and guidance. Modulation of Ca(2+) influx and release from stores by guidance cues shapes Ca(2+) signals, which determine the activation of downstream targets. Although the precise molecular mechanisms that underlie distinct...

    Synaptic transmission in the brain generally depends on action potentials. However, recent studies indicate that subthreshold variation in the presynaptic membrane potential also determines spike-evoked transmission. The informational content of each presynaptic action potential is therefore...
