The EJC Factor eIF4AIII Modulates Synaptic Strength and Neuronal Protein Expression
Proper neuronal function and several forms of synaptic plasticity are highly dependent on precise control of mRNA translation, particularly in dendrites. We find that eIF4AIII, a core exon junctionExpand

Firing Rate Homeostasis in Visual Cortex of Freely Behaving Rodents
It has been postulated that homeostatic mechanisms maintain stable circuit function by keeping neuronal firing within a set point range, but such firing rate homeostasis has never been demonstratedExpand

Natural stimuli evoke dynamic sequences of states in sensory cortical ensembles
We show that sensory responses are coherent across ensembles of mammalian cortical neurons, which respond to tastes with reliable, taste-specific sequences of relatively stable firing-rate states. Expand

Techniques for long-term multisite neuronal ensemble recordings in behaving animals.
Advances in our understanding of neural systems will go hand in hand with improvements in the experimental techniques used to study these systems. This article describes a series of methodologicalExpand

Dynamic and Multimodal Responses of Gustatory Cortical Neurons in Awake Rats
To investigate the dynamic aspects of gustatory activity, we recorded the responses of small ensembles of cortical neurons to tastants administered to awake rats. Multiple trials of each tastant wereExpand

Semantic Facutation in Aphasia: Effects of Time and Expectancy
Two auditory lexical decision semantic priming experiments were conducted to examine the extent to which the automaticcontrolled processing dichotomy can characterize lexical access deficits inExpand

The Impact of Audition on the Development of Visual Attention
Interactions between audition and vision were investigated in two experiments In the first experiment, school-age hearing children, deaf children with cochlear implants, and deaf children withoutExpand

Distinct Subtypes of Basolateral Amygdala Taste Neurons Reflect Palatability and Reward
The amygdala processes multiple, dissociable properties of sensory stimuli. Given its central location within a dense network of reciprocally connected regions, it is reasonable to expect thatExpand

Inactivation of Basolateral Amygdala Specifically Eliminates Palatability-Related Information in Cortical Sensory Responses
Evidence indirectly implicates the amygdala as the primary processor of emotional information used by cortex to drive appropriate behavioral responses to stimuli. Taste provides an ideal system withExpand

Behavioral states, network states, and sensory response variability.
We review data demonstrating that single-neuron sensory responses change with the states of the neural networks (indexed in terms of spectral properties of local field potentials) in which thoseExpand
