Department of Psychiatry, Keck Center for Integrative Neuroscience and Sloan Swartz Center for Theoretical Neurobiology, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, CA 94143, USA
Biol Psychiatry 71:1039-45. 2012..Finally, how these findings may relate to the pathophysiology of psychiatric conditions, as well as questions for future studies, are discussed...
- Responsive neurostimulation suppresses synchronized cortical rhythms in patients with epilepsyVikaas S Sohal
Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, CA 94127, USA
Neurosurg Clin N Am 22:481-8, vi. 2011..This may represent a therapeutic mechanism by which responsive neurostimulation can suppress epileptiform activity and disconnect stimulated regions from downstream targets in epilepsy and other neuropsychiatric conditions...
- Chronic reduction in inhibition reduces receptive field size in mouse auditory cortexBryan A Seybold
Coleman Memorial Laboratory, Department of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, University of California, San Francisco, CA 94143, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 109:13829-34. 2012..Our findings suggest chronic conditions that feature changes in inhibitory circuitry are not likely to be well modeled by acute network manipulations, and compensation may be a critical component of chronic neuronal conditions...
- Synaptic activity unmasks dopamine D2 receptor modulation of a specific class of layer V pyramidal neurons in prefrontal cortexSteven Gee
Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, California 94143, USA
J Neurosci 32:4959-71. 2012..Through this mechanism, D2Rs might enhance outputs to subcortical structures, contribute to reward-related persistent firing, or increase the level of noise in prefrontal circuits...
