    Neuroimage 44:1178-87. 2009
    ..Our results support the expanded bivalent view of NAcc function and call for expansion of current models of NAcc function that are solely focused on reward...

    Fatima Soliman
    The Sackler Institute for Developmental Psychobiology, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, NY 10065, USA
    Science 327:863-6. 2010
    ..Thus, this variant BDNF allele may play a role in anxiety disorders showing impaired learning of cues that signal safety versus threat and in the efficacy of treatments that rely on extinction mechanisms, such as exposure therapy...
  3. pmc The storm and stress of adolescence: insights from human imaging and mouse genetics
    B J Casey
    Sackler Institute for Developmental Psychobiology, Weil Cornell Medical College, 1300 York Avenue, New York, NY 10065, USA
    Dev Psychobiol 52:225-35. 2010
    ..Together, these studies provide a converging methods approach for understanding the highly variable stress and turmoil experienced in adolescence...
  4. pmc Attention enhances the retrieval and stability of visuospatial and olfactory representations in the dorsal hippocampus
    Isabel A Muzzio
    Department of Neuroscience, Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York, New York, USA
    PLoS Biol 7:e1000140. 2009
    ..Together, these results suggest that attention selectively modulates the encoding and retrieval of hippocampal representations by enhancing physiological responses to task-relevant information...

    Neurobiol Learn Mem 93:581-8. 2010
    ..These results are consistent with the role of the dorsal hippocampus in long-term spatial episodic memory, and support the involvement of larger portions of the hippocampus on the encoding of non-spatial olfactory representations...
