The oculomotor system coordinates different types of eye movements in order to orient the visual axis, including saccade and smooth pursuit,. It was traditionally thought that the premotor pathways for these different eye movements are largely separate. In particular, a group of midline cells in the pons called omnipause neurons were considered to be part(More)
The brain is a complex biological organization. In its hierarchy, different components , from neurons to functional cog-nitive circuits are interacting with each other. As a result of cooperation between neurons in the lower levels of this hierarchy , high level cognitive functions emerge (Stam and Reijneveld, 2007). In order to uncover the complexity of(More)
We used a network theory approach, based on the dynamic core hypothesis (DCH), to study the thalamo-cortical loop (TCL) and its subsets regarding their role in consciousness. We used the Collation of Connectivity Data on the Macaque Brain (CoCoMac) and calculated the degree distributions, transmission coefficients, connection density, clustering(More)
BACKGROUND Sexual activity is an important part of the human being's life but this instinct could be influenced by some factors such as diseases, drug using, aging, and menopause. But information about that is limited. AIM The aim of this study is to determine the status of sexual activity among married menopausal women in Amol, Iran. MATERIALS AND(More)
Abnormal brain function in schizophrenia involves an extended network of brain structures. In schizophrenia, an abnormal dopamine activity in accordance with altered GABA and glutamate transmission appears to interfere with this process. In this study, we have examined the effect of dopamine hyperactivity on CA3 pyramidal cells using a mathematical model.(More)
Multisensory Integration (MSI) is the study of how information coming from different sensory modalities, such as vision, audition and etc. are being integrated by the nervous system (Stein et al., 2009) as a complex system. MSI is one of the most important aspects of neuroscience which has a great influence on our decision making system. It plays a key role(More)
A commentary on Quantum formalism to describe binocular rivalry by Manousakis, E. Since the first systematic description of binocular rivalry by Wheatstone, this fascinating phenomenon has provided several new insights into the mechanisms of visual awareness (Leopold and Logothetis, 1999). Binocular rivalry (BR) is the subjective experience of randomly(More)
The brain is a complex network with functional elements spatially distributed in different regions. One suggested mechanism for communication among these distributed elements is synchronization (Singer, 1993). Two oscillating neural groups are called to be " synchronized " if over the time, their phase difference does not remarkably increase. In a real(More)
