The brain's router: a cortical network model of serial processing in the primate brain

PLoS Computational Biology

May 6, 2010

Ariel ZylberbergMariano Sigman

Abstract

The human brain efficiently solves certain operations such as object recognition and categorization through a massively parallel network of dedicated processors. However, human cognition also relies on the ability to perform an arbitrarily large set of tasks by flexibly recombining diff...read more

Cognitive Neuroscience

Cognitive neuroscience is the study of biological processes that underlie cognition and addresses the role of neural circuits in regulating cognitive activities. Here is the latest research.

Neural Networks

Here is the latest research on physiological and in silico networks and circuits implicated in the nervous system.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Brain

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive imaging technique that uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to generate images of the area of interest. MRI of the brain is commonly performed to visualize the brain and related structures in detail. Discover the latest research of MRI and the brain here.

Synaptic Junctions

Synaptic or neuronal junctions are the site of transmission of electrical nerve impulses between neurons or between neurons and effector cells. Discover the latest research on synaptic junctions here.

Interneurons & Stem Cells

Interneurons are found throughout central nervous system and create important networks of connections between other sensory and motor neurons. The use of stem cells to artificially create interneurons enables the study and understanding of the role of the interneurons throughout the CNS. Here is the latest research on interneurons and stem cells.

Neuronal Cell Types

There are diverse ranges of neurons, which are defined by their structural, functional, connectional and molecular properties. For example, some type of neurons includes sensory, sympathetic, and motor neurons. Discover the latest research on neuronal cell types here.

Functional MRI

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) images blood flow in the brain, using it as proxy for brain activity. It can also be used to look for brain abnormalities. To stay up to date on fMRI research, follow this feed.

Formation of Synapses and Circuits

Synapses are crucial for the transmission of information within neural circuits. These specialized intercellular junctions are the basis for the formation of complex networks. Formation of these synapses involve numerous steps that are essential for transmission of information. Here is the latest research on formation of synapses and circuits.

NMDA Receptor Signaling

The NDMA receptor is an ionotropic receptor that is activated when glutamate or glycine binds to it, initiating several downstream signaling cascades. NDMA receptor signaling is thought to be implicated in different pathologies, including depression. Here is the latest research on NDMA receptor signaling.

Basal Ganglia

Basal Ganglia are a group of subcortical nuclei in the brain associated with control of voluntary motor movements, procedural and habit learning, emotion, and cognition. Here is the latest research.

Electroencephalography

Electroencephalography (EEG) is an electrophysiological technique used to record electrical activity in the brain. It is commonly used in the diagnosis of epilepsy, sleep disorders, coma, encephalopathies, and brain death. Find the latest research on EEG here.

Cell Adhesion Molecules in the Brain

Cell adhesion molecules found on cell surface help cells bind with other cells or the extracellular matrix to maintain structure and function. Here is the latest research on their role in the brain.

Corticobasal Degeneration

Corticobasal Degeneration (CBD)is a rare, neurodegenerative disease of the cerebral cortex and the basal ganglia, characterized by movement disorders. Discover the latest research on CBD here.

Neuronal Identity

Neuronal identity is important for defining the end result of stem cell differentiation through neuronal developmentor for regenerative medicine. This could involved transcription factors used to drive induce pluripotent stem cells towards the neuronal lineage. Discover the latest research on Neuronal Identity here.
