Functional profiling of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae genome
Determining the effect of gene deletion is a fundamental approach to understanding gene function. Conventional genetic screens exhibit biases, and genes contributing to a phenotype are often missed.Expand

A multimodal cortical network for the detection of changes in the sensory environment
Sensory stimuli undergoing sudden changes draw attention and preferentially enter our awareness. We used event-related functional magnetic-resonance imaging (fMRI) to identify brain regionsExpand

Pain-related neurons in the human cingulate cortex
Although it is widely accepted that the cortex participates in pain perception, there is no direct evidence for the existence of cortical neurons that respond to noxious or painful stimuli in humans.Expand

Functional MRI study of thalamic and cortical activations evoked by cutaneous heat, cold, and tactile stimuli.
Positron emission tomography studies have provided evidence for the involvement of the thalamus and cortex in pain and temperature perception. However, the involvement of these structures in pain andExpand

Two systems of resting state connectivity between the insula and cingulate cortex
The insula and cingulate cortices are implicated in emotional, homeostatic/allostatic, sensorimotor, and cognitive functions. Non‐human primates have specific anatomical connections betweenExpand

An fMRI study of the anterior cingulate cortex and surrounding medial wall activations evoked by noxious cutaneous heat and cold stimuli
&NA; The anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) and adjacent regions in the medial wall have been implicated in sensory, motor and cognitive processes, including pain. Our previous functional magneticExpand

Theories of pain: from specificity to gate control.
Several theoretical frameworks have been proposed to explain the physiological basis of pain, although none yet completely accounts for all aspects of pain perception. Here, we provide a historicalExpand

Systemic alpha-adrenergic blockade with phentolamine: a diagnostic test for sympathetically maintained pain.
The diagnosis of sympathetically maintained pain (SMP) is typically established by assessment of pain relief during local anesthetic blockade of the sympathetic ganglia that innervate the painfulExpand
