Evidence from fMRI, ERPs and intracranial recordings suggests the existence of face-specific mechanisms in the primate occipitotemporal cortex. The present study used a 64-channel MEG system to monitor neural activity while normal subjects viewed a sequence of grayscale photographs of a variety of unfamiliar faces and non-face stimuli. In 14 of 15 subjects,(More)
Neuroimaging techniques can be used not only to identify the neural substrates of attention, but also to test cognitive theories of attention. Here we consider four classic questions in the psychology of visual attention: (i) Are some 'special' classes of stimuli (e.g. faces) immune to attentional modulation?; (ii) What are the information units on which(More)
To assess whether striatal and pallidal neurones may contribute to bimanual co-ordination, two macaque monkeys were trained to perform a delayed conditional sequence of co-ordinated pull and grasp movements, executed either bimanually or unimanually. Most of the 58 task-related neurones, recorded from the caudate nucleus, putamen, external and internal(More)
Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) plays an important role in neuronal cell apoptosis. The antisense RNA of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF-AS) is a natural antisense transcript that is transcribed opposite the gene that encodes BDNF. The aim of this study was to determine whether knockdown of BDNF-AS can suppress hypoxia/reoxygenation(More)
