Gaze Stabilization by Efference Copy Signaling without Sensory Feedback during Vertebrate Locomotion
BACKGROUND Self-generated body movements require compensatory eye and head adjustments in order to avoid perturbation of visual information processing. Retinal image stabilization is traditionallyExpand

Vestibular Asymmetry as the Cause of Idiopathic Scoliosis: A Possible Answer from Xenopus
Human idiopathic scoliosis is characterized by severe deformations of the spine and skeleton. The occurrence of vestibular-related deficits in these patients is well established but it is unclearExpand

Restricted Neural Plasticity in Vestibulospinal Pathways after Unilateral Labyrinthectomy as the Origin for Scoliotic Deformations
Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis in humans is often associated with vestibulomotor deficits. Compatible with a vestibular origin, scoliotic deformations were provoked in adult Xenopus frogs byExpand

Semicircular Canal Size Determines the Developmental Onset of Angular Vestibuloocular Reflexes in Larval Xenopus
Semicircular canals have been sensors of angular acceleration for 450 million years. This vertebrate adaptation enhances survival by implementing postural and visual stabilization during motion in aExpand

Bird terrestrial locomotion as revealed by 3D kinematics.
Most birds use at least two modes of locomotion: flying and walking (terrestrial locomotion). Whereas the wings and tail are used for flying, the legs are mainly used for walking. The role of otherExpand

Vestibulo-ocular signal transformation in frequency-tuned channels.
Self-generated locomotor activity is accompanied by head movements that cause retinal image displacements with a resultant degradation of visual information processing. To maintain visual acuity,Expand

Luminescence modulations of rhenium tricarbonyl complexes induced by structural variations.
Octahedral d(6) low-spin Re(I) tricarbonyl complexes are of considerable interest as noninvasive imaging probes and have been deeply studied owing to their biological stability, low toxicity, largeExpand

An intrinsic feed-forward mechanism for vertebrate gaze stabilization
Summary Accurate perception of the visual world plays a major role in animal survival. All vertebrates, whether running, swimming or flying, are confronted with the effects of their locomotor actionsExpand

A Neonatal Mouse Spinal Cord Injury Model for Assessing Post-Injury Adaptive Plasticity and Human Stem Cell Integration
Despite limited regeneration capacity, partial injuries to the adult mammalian spinal cord can elicit variable degrees of functional recovery, mediated at least in part by reorganization of neuronalExpand

Early postnatal maturation in vestibulospinal pathways involved in neck and forelimb motor control
To assess the organization and functional development of vestibulospinal inputs to cervical motoneurons (MNs), we have used electrophysiology (ventral root and electromyographic [EMG] recording),Expand
