17 DECEMBER 2010 VOL 330 SCIENCE www.sciencemag.org 1612 TEN YEARS AGO, KARL DEISSEROTH WAS stuck. A psychiatrist and neuroscientist, he wanted to learn how different brain circuits affect behavior—and what went awry in the brains of his patients with schizo phrenia and depression. But the tools of his trade were too crude: Electrodes inserted into the brain would stimulate too many cells in their vicinity. So in 2004, Deisseroth and his students invented a new tool. They inserted a gene for a… Expand
Gene regulation and genetics in neurochemistry, past to future
  • S. Barger

TLDR
Expanding these considerations to non‐peptide neurotransmitters illustrates how gene regulatory events impact neurochemistry in a much broader sense, extending beyond the neurochemicals that translate electrical signals into chemical ones in the synapse, to also include every aspect of neural development, structure, function, and pathology.

Recent efforts on how the two latter epigenetic factors participate in the sophisticated transcriptional process are highlighted and emerging techniques are described which permit us to uncover and gain insights into the fascinating genomic regulation. Expand
Four aspects of superoscillations
A function f is said to possess superoscillations if, in a finite region, f oscillates faster than the shortest wavelength that occurs in the Fourier transform of f. I will discuss four aspects ofExpand
Obesity and deep brain stimulation: an overview
TLDR
An initial summary of current methods in the management of obesity is presented and efforts in neuromodulation and DBS as a novel modality in the treatment of obesity disorders are explored. Expand
Efficient method to create superoscillations with generic target behavior
TLDR
A new numerically stable method for constructing superoscillatory wave forms in an arbitrary number of dimensions that allows the construction of superoscilling square-integrable functions that match any desired smooth behavior in their superoscilled region to arbitrary accuracy. Expand
