Cortical sound representations are adapted to the acoustic environment. Early exposure to exponential frequency-modulated (FM) sweeps results in more neurons selective to the experienced sounds. Here we examined the influence of pulsed noise experience on the development of sound representations in the primary auditory cortex (AI) of the rat. In naïve(More)
Molecular cloning of the human fibroblast Ca2+ channel pore-forming alpha1C subunit revealed (Soldatov, 1992. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 89:4628-4632) a naturally occurring mutation g2254 --> a that causes the replacement of the conservative alanine for threonine at the position 752 at the cytoplasmic end of transmembrane segment IIS6. Using stably(More)
In this letter, we calculate the redshift distribution of gamma-ray bursts assuming that they trace (i) the globally averaged star formation rate or (ii) the average metallicity in the Universe. While at redshifts 5 and below, both the star formation rate and metallicity are observationally determined modulo some uncertainties, at higher redshifts there are(More)
Lifetimes of states in 150Nd were measured using the recoil distance method following Coulomb excitation of 150Nd by a 132 MeV 32S beam. The experiment was performed at the Yale Tandem accelerator, employing the SPEEDY gamma-ray detector array and the New Yale Plunger Device. Reduced transition probabilities in 150Nd are compared to the predictions of the(More)
Maximum entropy models are increasingly being used to describe the collective activity of neural populations with measured mean neural activities and pairwise correlations, but the full space of probability distributions consistent with these constraints has not been explored. We provide upper and lower bounds on the entropy for the minimum entropy(More)
