Ankan Biswas and Supratim Ray tell the story about their paper that examined whether individuals can better control the power of their EEG-recorded alpha oscillations when provided real-time valid neurofeedback, compared to invalid and neutral neurofeedback.
Authors targeted the microglia-specific Tmem119 gene to generate two novel mouse models that can be used to visualize and control reporter protein expression in microglia with improved distinction from closely related cell types.
Authors suggest that blue light stimulation is ill-suited to long-term optogenetic experiments, especially those that measure transcription.
Authors show that real-time mutual interaction during eye contact is mediated by the cerebellum and limbic mirror system.
This research offers an important contribution to the knowledge of molecular mechanism of worm learning and sensory integration that may be applicable to learning in many organisms.
PhD Candidate Victoria Jensen and Dr. Steven Crone tell the story behind their eNeuro paper that showed that glutamatergic V2a neurons participate in a circuit that serves to constrain the activity of accessory respiratory muscles so that they are active only when needed.
Three graduates from the SfN Reviewer Mentor Program share their thoughts on quality in peer review and discuss their experience reviewing with eNeuro.
