    • Characterization of galanin in the murine brain 

      Hohmann, John George (2001)
      The neuropeptide galanin has been implicated in a many central nervous system functions. These range from fundamental processes, such the ability to successfully breed and regulate metabolism, to higher order functions ...
    • Connexins 26 and 32 in the developing neocortex 

      Eubanks, James L. (James Langdon), 1967- (2000)
      During neocortical neurogenesis, the basic structure of the neocortex arises through a precise coordination of cell division, specification, migration, and circuit formation. These processes are influenced, if not defined, ...
    • Development, generation, and origin of synchronous oscillations in the brainstem respiratory network 

      Sebe, Joy Yoshiko (2006)
      Neurons within the intact respiratory network are synchronized on long and short time scales to generate respiratory rhythm and synchronous oscillations in spike firing during inspiration (Figure 1.1), respectively. Such ...
    • Neural circuitry of retinal receptive fields in primate 

      Davenport, Christopher M (2007)
      The retina contains the first stages of the neural encoding of visual information that begins the generation of our perception of the visual world. The retina contains as many as 70 distinct cell types that interact in ...
    • The role of the corticothalamic projection in the primate motor thalamus 

      Ruffo, Mark (2007)
      The work in this dissertation focuses on identifying corticothalamic neurons and characterizing the signals carried along this pathway in the primate motor system. All experiments were carried out in awake primates performing ...
