    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 101:3957-61. 2004
    ..We suggest that there is, in the adult HVC, a subset of neurons whose life expectancy is determined by brain-derived neurotrophic factor during a sensitive period soon after these neurons reach destination and start forming connections...

    The Rockefeller University Field Research Center, Millbrook, New York 12545, USA
    J Neurosci 22:8684-90. 2002
    ..We suggest that singing and gonadal factors promote, separately, the recruitment of new neurons and that when they exert this effect together they do so in an additive manner...
