Friday Paper Post – May 24th 2014 (back from the dead pt. 2)

Still playing catch-up. Papers below!

1) Successful Execution of Working Memory Linked to Synchronized High-Frequency Gamma Oscillations Jun Yamamoto, Junghyup Suh, Daigo Takeuchi, and Susumu Tonegawa ; Cell 2014 (link)

  • This is an exciting paper, but I can’t help but feel like the use of the term “oops”  is really silly. I keep imagining it being read by Betty Boop 🙂
  • OopsExample1

2) Distinct Profiles of Myelin Distribution Along Single Axons of Pyramidal Neurons in the Neocortex Giulio Srubek Tomassy, Daniel R. Berger, Hsu-Hsin Chen, Narayanan Kasthuri, Kenneth J. Hayworth, Alessandro Vercelli, H. Sebastian Seung, Jeff W. Lichtman, Paola Arlotta ; Science 2014 (link)

  • I like this paper because I think it is a neat example of the type of information electron microscopy reconstructions of the brain can provide.

3) High-fidelity optical reporting of neuronal electrical activity with an ultrafast fluorescent voltage sensor François St-Pierre, Jesse D Marshall, Ying Yang, Yiyang Gong, Mark J Schnitzer & Michael Z Lin ; Nature Neuroscience 2014 (link)

  • If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a thousand times: the creation of a good genetically encoded voltage sensitive protein indicator would be HUGE.

4) Volitional modulation of optically recorded calcium signals during neuroprosthetic learning Kelly B Clancy, Aaron C Koralek, Rui M Costa, Daniel E Feldman & Jose M Carmena ; Nature Neuroscience 2014 (link)

5) More than a rhythm of life: breathing as a binder of orofacial sensation David Kleinfeld, Martin Deschênes, Fan Wang & Jeffrey D Moore ; Nature Neuroscience 2014 (link)

6) Population code in mouse V1 facilitates readout of natural scenes through increased sparseness Emmanouil Froudarakis, Philipp Berens, Alexander S Ecker, R James Cotton, Fabian H Sinz, Dimitri Yatsenko, Peter Saggau, Matthias Bethge & Andreas S Tolias ; Nature Neuroscience 2014 (link)

7) Executive control processes underlying multi-item working memory Antonio H Lara & Jonathan D Wallis ; Nature Neuroscience 2014 (link)

8) Scaling down of balanced excitation and inhibition by active behavioral states in auditory cortex Mu Zhou, Feixue Liang, Xiaorui R Xiong, Lu Li, Haifu Li, Zhongju Xiao, Huizhong W Tao & Li I Zhang ; Nature Neuroscience 2014 (link)

9) Chronic, wireless recordings of large-scale brain activity in freely moving rhesus monkeys David A Schwarz, Mikhail A Lebedev, Timothy L Hanson, Dragan F Dimitrov, Gary Lehew, Jim Meloy, Sankaranarayani Rajangam, Vivek Subramanian, Peter J Ifft, Zheng Li, Arjun Ramakrishnan, Andrew Tate, Katie Z Zhuang & Miguel A L Nicolelis ; Nature Methods 2014 (link)

  • I believe I have also professed my huge fandom of Miguel Nicolelis and his work. This paper did not disappoint 😀

10) Learning Precisely Timed Spikes Raoul-Martin Memmesheimer, Ran Rubin, Bence P. O ̈ lveczky, and Haim Sompolinsky ; Neuron 2014 (link)

11) Flying Drosophila stabilize their vision-based velocity controller by sensing wind with their antennae Sawyer Buckminster Fuller, Andrew D. Straw, Martin Y. Peek, Richard M. Murray, and Michael H. Dickinson ; PNAS 2014 (link)

12) Symbol addition by monkeys provides evidence for normalized quantity coding Margaret S. Livingstone, Warren W. Pettine, Krishna Srihasam, Brandon Moore, Istvan A. Morocz, and Daeyeol Lee ; PNAS 2014 (link)

13) Out-of-body–induced hippocampal amnesia Loretxu Bergouignan, Lars Nyber, and H. Henrik Ehrsson ; PNAS 2014 (link)

14) Restoring sensorimotor function through intracortical interfaces: progress and looming challenges Sliman J. Bensmaia and Lee Miller ; Nature Reviews Neuroscience 2014 (link)

15) Subnanometre resolution in three-dimensional magnetic resonance imaging of individual dark spins M. S. Grinolds, M. Warner, K. De Greve, Y. Dovzhenko, L. Thiel, R. L. Walsworth, S. Hong, P. Maletinsky and A. Yacoby; Nature Nanotechnology 2014 (link)

16) Optogenetic inhibition of neurons by internal light production Benjamin B. Land, Catherine E. Brayton, Kara E. Furman, Zoe LaPalombara and Ralph J. DiLeone ; Frontiers In Behavioral Neuroscience 2014 (link)

Shout out to Martin and Brandon on the papers! Congrats!
