    Johan J Bolhuis
    Department of Psychology, Cognitive Neurobiology and Helmholtz Institute, Utrecht University, Utrecht, The Netherlands
    PLoS ONE 7:e41556. 2012
    ..These results suggest that the song system nucleus HVC may contain a neural representation of a memory of the bird's own song. Such a representation may be formed during juvenile song learning and guide the bird's vocal output...
  2. pmc Darwin in mind: new opportunities for evolutionary psychology
    Johan J Bolhuis
    Behavioural Biology Group and Helmholtz Institute, Utrecht University, Utrecht, The Netherlands
    PLoS Biol 9:e1001109. 2011
    ..A redefined EP could use the theoretical insights of modern evolutionary biology as a rich source of hypotheses concerning the human mind, and could exploit novel methods from a variety of adjacent research fields...

    Johan J Bolhuis
    Behavioural Biology, Department of Biology and Helmholtz Institute, Utrecht University, Utrecht, The Netherlands
    Neuroreport 21:395-8. 2010
    ..In addition, birdsong learning is increasingly seen as the closest animal equivalent to the acquisition of speech and language in humans...
  5. pmc Memory in the making: localized brain activation related to song learning in young songbirds
    Sharon M H Gobes
    Behavioural Biology and Helmholtz Institute, Utrecht University, Utrecht, The Netherlands
    Proc Biol Sci 277:3343-51. 2010
    ..The findings provide insight into the formation of auditory memories that guide vocal production learning, a process fundamental for human speech acquisition...

    Nienke J Terpstra
    Behavioural Biology, Institute of Biology Leiden, Leiden University, 2300 RA Leiden, The Netherlands
    J Comp Neurol 494:784-91. 2006
    ..These results suggest that in female zebra finches the CMM may be (part of) the neural substrate for the representation of the memory of their father's song...

    Sharon M H Gobes
    Behavioural Biology and Helmholtz Institute, Utrecht University, 3508 TB Utrecht, The Netherlands
    J Comp Neurol 516:312-20. 2009

    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 109:12782-7. 2012

  9. ncbi request reprint An analysis of the neural representation of birdsong memory
    Nienke J Terpstra
    Behavioural Biology, Institute of Biology, Leiden University, 2300 RA Leiden, The Netherlands
    J Neurosci 24:4971-7. 2004
    ..There was no such correlation in the other two groups. These results suggest that experience-related neuronal activation is specific to the tutor song and thus unlikely to be a result of differences in attention...

    Nienke J Terpstra
    Behavioural Biology, Institute of Biology Leiden, Leiden University, 2300 RA Leiden, The Netherlands

    Johan J Bolhuis
    Behavioural Biology, Department of Biology and Helmholtz Institute, Padualaan 8, Utrecht University, The Netherlands
    Nat Rev Neurosci 7:347-57. 2006
