The role of neurogranin in modulating contextual memory and plasticity : FMRP involvement and adrenergic-dependent facilitation
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2020)
Activity-dependent changes in neuronal properties (neuronal plasticity) are critical for information processing and storage in the brain. It is well-established that protein synthesis is essential for both memory formation ...
Benchmarking models of the ventral stream
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
This work establishes a benchmark by which to measure models of the ventral stream using crowd-sourced human behavioral measurements. We collected human error patterns on an object recognition task across a variety of ...
Improved methods for rapid and scalable tissue clearing and labeling
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
Combined measurement of diverse molecular and anatomical traits that span multiple levels remains a major challenge in biology. Here, we introduce a simple method that enables proteomic imaging for scalable, integrated, ...
A prefrontal source of visual target enhancement in the macaque area V4
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
The ventral pre-arcuate area (VPA) in the primate prefrontal cortex has recently been found to play an important role in feature-based selection of visual targets in the context of a naturalistic free-gaze visual search ...
Towards optical connectomics : feasibility of 3D reconstruction of neural morphology using expansion microscopy and in situ molecular barcoding
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
Reconstruction of the 3D morphology of neurons is an essential step towards the analysis and understanding of the structures and functions of neural circuits. Optical microscopy has been a key technology for mapping brain ...
