- Contribution of reference frames for movement planning in peripersonal space representationMohammad Ghafouri
Biology Department, Temple University, 1900 North 12th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19122, USA
Exp Brain Res 169:24-36. 2006..These findings are consistent with the assumption of an anisotropic action-related representation of peripersonal space when the movement is performed in a body-centered frame...
- HIV-1 associated dementia: symptoms and causesMohammad Ghafouri
Department of Neuroscience, Center for Neurovirology, Temple University School of Medicine, Pennsylvania 19122, USA
Retrovirology 3:28. 2006..In this review, we discussed the symptoms and causes leading to HAD. Outcome from this review will provide new information regarding mechanisms of neuronal loss in AIDS patients...
- C/EBPbeta regulates human immunodeficiency virus 1 gene expression through its association with cdk9Giuseppe Mameli
Department of Neuroscience, Center for Neurovirology, Temple University School of Medicine, 1900 N 12th Street 015 96, Philadelphia, PA 19122, USA
J Gen Virol 88:631-40. 2007..Together, our data suggest that Tat-C/EBPbeta association is mediated through cdk9, and that phosphorylated C/EBPbeta may influence AIDS progression by increasing expression of HIV-1 genes...

Molecular Studies of Neurodegenerative Diseases Laboratory, Department of Neurology, Temple University School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA 19140, USA
Neurodegener Dis 9:68-80. 2012..In particular, p53 appears to have important functions as it relates to neurodegeneration and synaptic plasticity...
- Cdk9 phosphorylates p53 on serine 392 independently of CKIIPier Paolo Claudio
Center for Biotechnology, Sbarro Institute for Cancer Research and Molecular Medicine, College of Science and Technology, Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19122, USA
J Cell Physiol 208:602-12. 2006..These studies demonstrate the existence of a feedback-loop between p53 and cdk9, pinpointing a novel mechanism by which p53 regulates the basal transcriptional machinery...
- Pointing movements may be produced in different frames of reference depending on the task demandMohammad Ghafouri
Neurological Science Research Centre, Department of Physiology, University of Montreal and Research Centre, Rehabilitation Institute of Montreal, Montreal, Quebec, Canada H3S 2J4
Brain Res 929:117-28. 2002..A theoretical framework is suggested in which FRs are considered as pre-existing neurophysiological structures permitting switching between different FRs and guiding multiple joints and muscles without redundancy problems...
- Initiation of rapid reach-and-grasp balance reactions: is a pre-formed visuospatial map used in controlling the initial arm trajectory?Mohammad Ghafouri
Centre for Studies in Aging, Sunnybrook and Women s College Health Sciences Centre, Toronto, Canada
Exp Brain Res 155:532-6. 2004..This prevents potential delays associated with visual processing and ensures very rapid onset of arm movement that is directed appropriately even though the position of the body is perturbed unpredictably with respect to the target...
