There is evidence that the inferotemporal visual cortex in the monkey projects to the amygdala, and evidence that damage to this region impairs the learning of associations between visual stimuli and reward or punishment. In recordings made in the amygdala to determine whether or not visual responses were found, and if so how they were affected by the(More)
Meta-analysis based techniques are emerging as powerful, robust tools for developing models of connectivity in functional neuroimaging. Here, we apply meta-analytic connectivity modeling to the human caudate to 1) develop a model of functional connectivity, 2) determine if meta-analytic methods are sufficiently sensitive to detect behavioral domain(More)
To investigate whether the responses of neurones in the lateral hypothalamus and substantia innominata associated with the sight of food could control the responses of the hungry monkey to the food, the latency of activation of these neurones by food was measured. It was found that when an electromagnetically operated wide-aperture shutter opened to reveal(More)
The activity of neurones in the inferotemporal cortex of the alert rhesus monkey was recorded while the monkey was shown visual stimuli, which included both food and non-food objects for comparison with the activity of neurones in the lateral hypothalamus and substantia innominata. In the anteroventral part of the inferotemporal cortex, neurones were found(More)
The present experiments were conducted to determine the electrophysiological and pharmacological properties of substantia nigra neurons in the mouse. These cells were studied using extracellular single unit recording and microiontophoretic techniques in both chloral hydrate anesthetized mice and in vitro mouse slices. In the in vivo preparation the(More)
OBJECTIVE Basal ganglia neuronal activity in patients undergoing posteroventral pallidotomy (PVP) for the treatment of primary genetic, secondary, or idiopathic dystonia (DYS) was studied to gain a better understanding of the pathophysiology of DYS. METHODS Intraoperative neurophysiological data recorded from 15 DYS patients were compared with those from(More)
Estrogen formation is catalyzed by the aromatase cytochrome P450 (P450AROM) enzyme. Aromatase activity has been detected in several regions in the rat brain. In the present study, we used peptide-generated polyclonal antibodies raised against a 20-amino acid synthetic fragment of the rat P450AROM protein (as deduced from the nucleic acid sequence of the rat(More)
We report a patient with Parkinson's disease whose whole body drenching sweats were completely alleviated by stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus and/or adjacent structures. Sweating reappeared 4h after the pulse generator (stimulation) was turned off and ceased when stimulation was resumed. Imaging studies with reconstruction indicated that stimulation(More)
