FMRI Clustering in AFNI: False-Positive Rates Redux
Recent reports of inflated false-positive rates (FPRs) in FMRI group analysis tools by Eklund and associates in 2016 have become a large topic within (and outside) neuroimaging. They concluded thatExpand

Trouble at Rest: How Correlation Patterns and Group Differences Become Distorted After Global Signal Regression
Resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (RS-FMRI) holds the promise of revealing brain functional connectivity without requiring specific tasks targeting particular brain systems. RS-FMRIExpand

Phasic and sustained fear in humans elicits distinct patterns of brain activity
Aversive events are typically more debilitating when they occur unpredictably than predictably. Studies in humans and animals indicate that predictable and unpredictable aversive events can induceExpand

Glycogen synthase kinase 3β (GSK3β) mediates 6‐ hydroxydopamine‐induced neuronal death
The causes of sporadic Parkinson's disease (PD) are poorly understood. 6‐Hydroxydopamine (6‐ OHDA), a PD mimetic, is widely used to model this neurodegenerative disorder in vitro and in vivo;Expand

A new method for improving functional-to-structural MRI alignment using local Pearson correlation
Accurate registration of Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (FMRI) T2-weighted volumes to same-subject high-resolution T1-weighted structural volumes is important for Blood Oxygenation LevelExpand

FMRI group analysis combining effect estimates and their variances
Conventional functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI) group analysis makes two key assumptions that are not always justified. First, the data from each subject is condensed into a single numberExpand

Linear mixed-effects modeling approach to FMRI group analysis
Conventional group analysis is usually performed with Student-type t-test, regression, or standard AN(C)OVA in which the variance-covariance matrix is presumed to have a simple structure. SomeExpand

The extracellular signal-regulated kinase pathway contributes to the control of behavioral excitement
The extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) pathway mediates neuronal plasticity in the CNS. The mood stabilizers lithium and valproate activate the ERK pathway in prefrontal cortex andExpand

The Urban Resident Basic Medical Insurance: a landmark reform towards universal coverage in China.
As the latest government effort to reform China's health care system, Urban Resident Basic Medical Insurance (URBMI) was piloted in seventy-nine cities during the summer of 2007, following StateExpand

Inhibitory effect on cerebral inflammatory agents that accompany traumatic brain injury in a rat model: A potential neuroprotective mechanism of recombinant human erythropoietin (rhEPO)
Erythropoietin (EPO) has recently been shown to have a neuroprotective effect in animal models of traumatic brain injury (TBI). However, the precise mechanisms remain unclear. Cerebral inflammationExpand
