- Instructive signals for motor learning from visual cortical area MTMegan R Carey
Howard Hughes Medical Institute, W M Keck Foundation Center for Integrative Neuroscience, Neuroscience Graduate Program, and Department of Physiology, University of California, San Francisco, California 94143 0444, USA
Nat Neurosci 8:813-9. 2005..We conclude that MT provides instructive signals for motor learning in smooth pursuit eye movements under natural conditions, suggesting a similar role for sensory cortices in many kinds of learned behaviors...
- The representation of time for motor learningJavier F Medina
Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Department of Physiology and W M Keck Foundation Center for Integrative Neuroscience, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, CA 94143, USA
Neuron 45:157-67. 2005..We conclude that high temporal precision in motor output relies on multiple signals whose contributions to timing vary according to task requirements...
- Activity-dependent regulation of synapses by retrograde messengersWade G Regehr
Department of Neurobiology, Harvard Medical School, 220 Longwood Avenue, Boston, MA 02115, USA
Neuron 63:154-70. 2009..Here, we provide an overview of the signaling systems that lead to rapid changes in synaptic strength. We consider the capabilities, specializations, and physiological roles of each type of signaling system...
- Presynaptic CB1 receptors regulate synaptic plasticity at cerebellar parallel fiber synapsesMegan R Carey
Department of Neurobiology, Harvard Medical School, 220 Longwood Ave, Boston, MA 02115, USA
J Neurophysiol 105:958-63. 2011..Further, parallel fiber LTD is not observed in these mice, indicating that presynaptic CB1Rs regulate long-term plasticity at this synapse...
- Signals that modulate gain control for smooth pursuit eye movements in monkeysMegan R Carey
Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Department of Physiology, W M Keck Foundation Center for Integrative Neuroscience, and Neuroscience Graduate Program, University of California, San Francisco, California 94143 0444, USA
J Neurophysiol 91:623-31. 2004..Similar changes in the gaze velocity signal have been reported in the cerebellar floccular complex following adaptive modification of the VOR and could be present in other brain areas that carry putative gaze velocity signals...
