Studying the neural networks controlling higher brain functions in the marmoset, to gain new insights into information processing and diseases of the human brain.Link
Brain Science Flight, Piloting to a New Height!
Advances in neuroimaging and neuroanatomy have yielded major insights concerning fundamental principles of cortical organization and evolution, thus speaking to how well different species serve as models for human brain function in health and disease.
Research outlines and researcher information of the newly-recruited groups are available on the Brain/MINDS Beyond website.
Yuki Sugiura group of Keio University mapped the content of monoamine neurotransmitters in the whole mouse brain. The group found that the paraventricular nucleus of the thalamus is likely an important nucleus of the brain monoamine system.
Mitsuo Kawato group of the Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute International (ATR) and Hakwan Lau group of the California State University, Los Angeles, have revealed the dissociations between subjective fear and its physiological correlates by multivoxel pattern analysis.
