Friday Paper Post – Posted on Saturday Dec 28th

I hope everyone has had a chance to spend some quality time with family and friends as the year wraps up!

A sprinkling of papers are below:

1) Cortical neural populations can guide behavior by integrating inputs linearly, independent of synchrony Mark H. Histed and John H. R. Maunsell ; PNAS 2013 (link)

  • Mark Histed presented this work COSYNE this year and I’m really looking forward to revisiting what appeared to be an a very interesting result!

2) Awake reactivation predicts memory in humans Bernhard P. Staresina, Arjen Alink, Nikolaus Kriegeskorte, and Richard N. Henson ; PNAS 2013 (link)

3) Primary Visual Cortex Represents the Difference Between Past and Present Nora Nortmann, Sascha Rekauzke, Selim Onat, Peter König and Dirk Jancke ; Cerebral Cortex 2013 (link)

  • I think this paper is very interesting!

4) Stereotyped connectivity and computations in higher-order olfactory neurons Mehmet Fişek & Rachel I Wilson ; Nature Neuroscience 2013 (link)

5) An electroconvulsive therapy procedure impairs reconsolidation of episodic memories in humans Marijn C W Kroes, Indira Tendolkar, Guido A van Wingen Jeroen A van Waarde, Bryan A Strange & Guillén Fernández ; Nature Neuroscience 2013 (link)

6) Selective Injection System into Hippocampus CA1 via Monitored Theta Oscillation Jyoji Tsutajima, Takato Kunitake, Yoshihiko Wakazono, Kogo Takamiya ; PLoS One 2013 (link)

7) Unilateral Lateral Entorhinal Inactivation Impairs Memory Expression in Trace Eyeblink Conditioning Stephanie E. Tanninen, Mark D. Morrissey, Kaori Takehara-Nishiuchi ; PLoS One 2013 (link)

8)  Declining NAD+ Induces a Pseudohypoxic State Disrupting Nuclear-Mitochondrial Communication during Aging Ana P. Gomes, Nathan L. Price, Alvin J.Y. Ling, Javid J. Moslehi, Magdalene K. Montgomery, Luis Rajman, James P. White,7 Joao S. Teodoro, Christiane D. Wrann, Basil P. Hubbard, Evi M. Mercken, Carlos M. Palmeira, Rafael de Cabo, Anabela P. Rolo, Nigel Turner, Eric L. Bell, and David A. Sinclair ; Cell 2013 (link)

  • This last paper is definitely outside of my usual comfort zone, but the hype in the mainstream news brought it to my attention.  Kind of fun to check out a paper in another field.
