Thalamic projections sustain prefrontal activity during working memory maintenance

Using pathway-specific optogenetic inhibition, the authors demonstrate that projections from the mediodorsal thalamus to prefrontal cortex support the maintenance of working memory, while prefrontalâ€...

How the cortex assigns credit for causality

New research affirms a key role for neurons in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex in the crucial learning task of determining what caused a desired result.

Manipulating fear associations via optogenetic modulation of amygdala inputs to prefrontal cortex

Fear-related disorders are thought to reflect strong and persistent fear associations. The authors show that optogenetic high-frequency stimulation of direct amygdala inputs to the prefrontal cortex c...

Amygdala inputs to prefrontal cortex guide behavior amid conflicting cues of reward and punishment

Little is known about the mechanisms underlying the orchestration of competing motivational drives. During the simultaneous presentation of cues associated with shock or sucrose, when rats may engage ...

Study illustrates how the cortex assigns credit for causality

(Brown University) New research in the Journal of Neuroscience affirms a key role for neurons in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex in the crucial learning task of determining what caused a desired re...

Prefrontal–hippocampal interactions in episodic memory

The prefrontal cortex and the hippocampus have distinct and complementary roles in episodic memory, and their interactions are also crucial for memory. Eichenbaum describes the pathways and mechanisms...

Prefrontal Cortex: A Mystery of Belated Memories.

A recent study suggests that the prefrontal cortex gradually becomes critical as a storage site for remotely acquired memories. How do we interpret this observation in light of the well-known function...

Metabolic disturbances due to a high-fat diet in a non-insulin-resistant animal model.

Shift workers have metabolic changes more often than day workers. It is also known that night workers prefer foods high in saturated fat. Such data suggest that shift workers are prone to cardiovascul...

Impulsive-antisocial psychopathic traits linked to increased volume and functional connectivity within prefrontal cortex.

Psychopathy is a personality disorder characterized by callous lack of empathy, impulsive antisocial behavior, and criminal recidivism. Studies of brain structure and function in psychopathy have freq...

Association between depressive symptoms and morningness-eveningness, sleep duration and rotating shift work in Japanese nurses.

Higher depressive symptoms have been reported in rotating shift workers compared with day workers. Depressive symptoms in adults who do not engage in night work have also been shown to be associated w...

The Distributed Nature of Working Memory.

Studies in humans and non-human primates have provided evidence for storage of working memory contents in multiple regions ranging from sensory to parietal and prefrontal cortex. We discuss potential ...
