Genome-wide patterns of selection in 230 ancient Eurasians
Ancient DNA makes it possible to observe natural selection directly by analysing samples from populations before, during and after adaptation events. Here we report a genome-wide scan for selectionExpand

Ancient human genomes suggest three ancestral populations for present-day Europeans
We sequenced genomes from a ∼7,000 year old early farmer from Stuttgart in Germany, an ∼8,000 year old hunter-gatherer from Luxembourg, and seven ∼8,000 year old hunter-gatherers from southernExpand

Mitochondrial genomes reveal an explosive radiation of extinct and extant bears near the Miocene-Pliocene boundary
BackgroundDespite being one of the most studied families within the Carnivora, the phylogenetic relationships among the members of the bear family (Ursidae) have long remained unclear. WidelyExpand

Electrophysiological and morphological characteristics of three subtypes of rat globus pallidus neurone in vitro
1 Neurones of the globus pallidus (GP) have been classified into three subgroups based on the visual inspection of current clamp electrophysiological properties and morphology of biocytin‐filledExpand

Molecular phylogeny, biogeography, and habitat preference evolution of marsupials.
Marsupials exhibit great diversity in ecology and morphology. However, compared with their sister group, the placental mammals, our understanding of many aspects of marsupial evolution remainsExpand

Dopamine D2 receptor mediated presynaptic inhibition of striatopallidal GABAA IPSCs in vitro
Abstract The modulation of GABA release within the globus pallidus (GP) by dopamine was studied using whole-cell patch clamp recordings from visually identified neurones. In sagittal slices, singleExpand

Ancient mitochondrial DNA provides high-resolution time scale of the peopling of the Americas
Native American population history is reexamined using a large data set of pre-Columbian mitochondrial genomes. The exact timing, route, and process of the initial peopling of the Americas remainsExpand

Reconstructing the Deep Population History of Central and South America
Summary We report genome-wide ancient DNA from 49 individuals forming four parallel time transects in Belize, Brazil, the Central Andes, and the Southern Cone, each dating to at least ∼9,000 yearsExpand
