    Role of the thalamus in basal forebrain regulation of neural activity in the primary auditory cortex

    Azimi, Hamid ; Klaassen, Arndt-Lukas ; Thomas, Kevin ; Harvey, Michael A. ; Rainer, Gregor

    In: Cerebral Cortex, 2020, vol. 30, no. 8, p. 4481–4495

    Many studies have implicated the basal forebrain (BF) as a potent regulator of sensory encoding even at the earliest stages of or cortical processing. The source of this regulation involves the well-documented corticopetal cholinergic projections from BF to primary cortical areas. However, the BF also projects to subcortical structures, including the thalamic reticular nucleus (TRN), which...

    Divergent solutions to visual problem solving across mammalian species

    Mustafar, Faiz ; Harvey, Michael A. ; Khani, Abbas ; Arató, József ; Rainer, Gregor

    In: eNeuro, 2018, vol. 5, no. 4, p. -

    Our understanding of the neurobiological underpinnings of learning and behavior relies on the use of invasive techniques, which necessitate the use of animal models. However, when different species learn the same task, to what degree are they actually producing the same behavior and engaging homologous neural circuitry? This question has received virtually no recent attention, even as the...
