An fMRI Investigation of Emotional Engagement in Moral Judgment
The long-standing rationalist tradition in moral psychology emphasizes the role of reason in moral judgment. A more recent trend places increased emphasis on emotion. Although both reason and emotionExpand

Natural Whisker-Guided Behavior by Head-Fixed Mice in Tactile Virtual Reality
We present a whisker-based, tactile virtual reality system for head-fixed mice running on a spherical treadmill that allows precise control of sensorimotor variables during natural tactile navigation. Expand

EEG Oscillations Reveal Neural Correlates of Evidence Accumulation
We show that the dynamics of evidence accumulation are most strongly correlated with ramping of oscillatory power in the 4–9 Hz theta band over the course of a trial, although it also correlates with oscillatories in other frequency bands. Expand

Experience-dependent shaping of hippocampal CA1 intracellular activity in novel and familiar environments
A model in which initial inhomogeneities in inputs are amplified to produce robust place field activity, then plasticity refines this representation into one with less strongly modulated, but more stable, inputs for long-term storage. Expand

Morphometry of human insular cortex and insular volume reduction in Williams syndrome.
Functional imaging in humans and anatomical data in monkeys have implicated the insula as a multimodal sensory integrative brain region. The topography of insular connections is organized by itsExpand

Cortical pattern generation during dexterous movement is input-driven
The motor cortex controls skilled arm movement by sending temporal patterns of activity to lower motor centres 1 . Expand

Early Sensory Pathways for Detection of Fearful Conditioned Stimuli: Tectal and Thalamic Relays
Sensory stimuli acquire significance through learning. A neutral sensory stimulus can become a fearful conditioned stimulus (CS) through conditioning. Here we report that the sensory pathways used toExpand

Vibrissa Sensation in Superior Colliculus: Wide-Field Sensitivity and State-Dependent Cortical Feedback
Rodents use their vibrissae (whiskers) to sense and navigate the environment. A main target of this sensory information is the superior colliculus in the midbrain, which rats can use to detectExpand

Atypical Brain Torque in Boys With Developmental Stuttering
The counterclockwise brain torque, defined as a larger right prefrontal and left parietal-occipital lobe, is a consistent brain asymmetry. Reduced or reversed lobar asymmetries are markers ofExpand

Neural Correlates of Active Avoidance Behavior in Superior Colliculus
Active avoidance of harmful situations seems highly adaptive, but the underlying neural mechanisms are unknown. Rats can effectively use the superior colliculus during active avoidance to detect aExpand
