Huan Luo’s group has recently published a paper on PLoS Biology (Jia, Liu, Fang, & Luo, 2017). . They employed EEG recordings in combination with a temporal response function (TRF) method to examine the dynamic neural mechanism underlying multi-object att
Sheng Li’s group investigated the suppression of reward salience in the context of perceptual competition. Previous studies have demonstrated that reward-associated items lead to rapid distraction and associated behavioral costs, which are difficult to ov
Zhuan Zhou's group investigate mechanisms of neurotransmitter, in particular catecholamines , release from soma of single cells , brain slices or living rat/mouse brains using animal disease models.
A study from Lu Lin’s group recently reported a new mechanism underlying the rapid antidepressant effects of N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAR) antagonists.
A Novel Procedure to Treat Tobacco Use Disorder
Xiaolin Zhou’s group show the involvement of COMT Val158Met polymorphism in the framing effect in decision-making and suggested resting-state functional connectivity between OFC and amygdala as a neural mediator underlying this gene–behavior association
Fang Fang’s group demonstrate that perceptual learning modifies the functional specializations of visual cortical areas.They prove that perceptual learning in visually normal adults shapes the functional architecture of the brain in a much more pronounced
Sheng Li’s group investigated the processing of different types of contours under conscious and unconscious conditions. The results suggest that collinear but not orthogonal contours can be processed and serve as attentional cues without ……
Yun Wang’s group demonstrate that Cdk5 phosphorylates TRPV1 at Threonine 406 and promotes the surface localization of TRPV1, leading to inflammatory thermal hyperalgesia. Their studies provide a potential therapy for inflammatory pain.
Hang Zhang‘ lab described three studies using a novel mathematical method that permitted them to measure the brain’s representation of visual and motor error in a simple reaching task. They prove for the first time that human representation of probabilist
