A circadian clock in the fish retina regulates dopamine release via activation of melatonin receptors
Although many biochemical, morphological and physiological processes in the vertebrate retina are controlled by a circadian (24 h) clock, the location of the clock and how the clock alters retinalExpand

The impact of emotion valence on brain processing of behavioral inhibitory control: Spatiotemporal dynamics
Emotion is known to interact with behavioral inhibitory control (BIC), an ability critical for adaptive living. Nevertheless, how emotion valence influences this control, and the spatiotemporalExpand

Dcx Re-expression Reduces Subcortical Band Heterotopia and Seizure Threshold in an Animal Model of Neuronal Migration Disorder
Disorders of neuronal migration can lead to malformations of the cerebral neocortex that greatly increase the risk of seizures. It remains untested whether malformations caused by disorders inExpand

Dopamine mediates circadian clock regulation of rod and cone input to fish retinal horizontal cells
A circadian (24‐hour) clock regulates the light responses of fish cone horizontal cells, second order neurones in the retina that receive synaptic contact from cones and not from rods. Due to theExpand

Treatment of hypoxic–ischemic encephalopathy in mouse by transplantation of embryonic stem cell-derived cells
A 7-day-old hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) mouse model was used to study the effect of transplantation of embryonic stem (ES) cell-derived cells on the HIE. After the inducement in vitro, theExpand

Estrogen receptor GPR30 exerts anxiolytic effects by maintaining the balance between GABAergic and glutamatergic transmission in the basolateral amygdala of ovariectomized mice after stress
G-protein-coupled receptor 30 (GPR30)/G-protein-coupled estrogen receptor is a novel estrogen membrane receptor that localizes to the cell membrane and endoplasmic reticulum. GPR30 is widelyExpand

Urotensin II inhibitor eases neuropathic pain by suppressing the JNK/NF-κB pathway.
Urotensin II (U-II), a cyclic peptide originally isolated from the caudal neurosecretory system of fishes, can produce proinflammatory effects through its specific G protein-coupled receptor, GPR14.Expand

Behavioural responses of sympatric rodents to complete pilferage
Food-hoarding animals employ a variety of tactics to minimize the loss of caches to pilferers. It remains unclear, however, how these responses are affected by complete pilferage events and ifExpand

A neurotrophic peptide-functionalized self-assembling peptide nanofiber hydrogel enhances rat sciatic nerve regeneration
Nerve guidance conduit (NGC) is a potential alternative to autologous nerve for peripheral nerve regeneration. A promising therapeutic strategy is to modify the nerve guidance conduit intraluminalExpand
