- Timing of brain-derived neurotrophic factor exposure affects life expectancy of new neuronsBenjamin Alvarez-Borda
The Rockefeller University, 1230 York Avenue, New York, NY 10021, USA
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...
- Gonads and singing play separate, additive roles in new neuron recruitment in adult canary brainBenjamin Alvarez-Borda
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...
