The direct detection of neuronal electrical activity is one of the most challenging goals in non-BOLD fMRI research. Previous work has demonstrated its feasibility in phantom and cell culture studies, but attempts in in vivo studies remain few and far between. Most recent in vivo studies used T2*-weighted sequences to directly detect neuronal electrical(More)
The olfactory system responds to the same stimulus with great variability according to the current state of the brain. At the levels of multi-unit activity and local field potentials, the response of the olfactory bulb (OB) to a given olfactory stimulus during a state of lower background activity is stronger than the response that occurs during higher(More)
The neural activities of the olfactory bulb (OB) can be modulated significantly by internal brain states. While blood oxygenation level dependent functional MRI (BOLD-fMRI) has been extensively applied to study OB in small animals, the relationship between BOLD signals and electrophysiological signals remains to be elucidated. Our recent study has revealed(More)
Reactivation of deafferented cortex plays a key role in mediating the recovery of lost functions, although the precise mechanism is not fully understood. This study simultaneously characterized the dynamic spatiotemporal features of tactile responses in areas 3b and 1 before and 6-8 weeks after partial dorsal column lesion (DCL), and examined how the(More)
Dim-light vision is present in all bats, but is divergent among species. Old-World fruit bats (Pteropodidae) have fully developed eyes; the eyes of insectivorous bats are generally degraded, and these bats rely on well-developed echolocation. An exception is the Emballonuridae, which are capable of laryngeal echolocation but prefer to use vision for(More)
Blood oxygenation level dependent functional magnetic resonance imaging (BOLD-fMRI), one of the most powerful technologies in neuroscience, measures neural activity indirectly. Therefore, systematic correlation of BOLD signals with other neural activity measurements is critical to understanding and then using the technology. Numerous studies have revealed(More)
To compose some happy melodies which have hierarchical structures, this paper proposes an automatic melody composition algorithm based on relations. First, various types of melody structure are formalized and saved into a database, so the melody structure form preferred by a user can be elected by human-computer interaction. Second, some sequences of(More)
Clusterin, a protein involved in many biological processes, is expressed broadly in the central nervous system, but its functions remain largely unknown. As preparations for elucidating some possible functions, we examined the spatiotemporal expression patterns of clusterin in the mouse olfactory bulb at different developmental stages and under different(More)
