Self-affirmation alters the brain's response to health messages and subsequent behavior change [Neuroscience]

17-Feb-2015 | Emily B. Falk; Matthew Brook O’Donnell; Christopher N. Cascio; Francis Tinney; Yoona Kang; Matthew D. Lieberman; She ..., Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences current issue, 2015

Health communications can be an effective way to increase positive health behaviors and decrease negative health behaviors; however, those at highest risk are often most defensive and least open to such messages. For example, increasing physical activity among sedentary individuals affects a wide ...

Two-photon brightness of azobenzene photoswitches designed for glutamate receptor optogenetics [Neuroscience]

17-Feb-2015 | Elizabeth C. Carroll; Shai Berlin; Joshua Levitz; Michael A. Kienzler; Zhe Yuan; Dorte Madsen; Delmar S. Larsen; Ehu ..., Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences current issue, 2015

Mammalian neurotransmitter-gated receptors can be conjugated to photoswitchable tethered ligands (PTLs) to enable photoactivation, or photoantagonism, while preserving normal function at neuronal synapses. “MAG” PTLs for ionotropic and metabotropic glutamate receptors (GluRs) are based on an ...

Plasma butyrylcholinesterase regulates ghrelin to control aggression [Neuroscience]

17-Feb-2015 | Vicky Ping Chen; Yang Gao; Liyi Geng; Robin J. Parks; Yuan-Ping Pang; Stephen Brimijoin, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences current issue, 2015

Ongoing mouse studies of a proposed therapy for cocaine abuse based on viral gene transfer of butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) mutated for accelerated cocaine hydrolysis have yielded surprising effects on aggression. Further investigation has linked these effects to a reduction in circulating ...

Behavioral training reverses global cortical network dysfunction induced by perinatal antidepressant exposure [Neuroscience]

17-Feb-2015 | Xiaoming Zhou; Jordan Y.-F. Lu; Ryan D. Darling; Kimberly L. Simpson; Xiaoqing Zhu; Fang Wang; Liping Yu; Xinde Sun; ..., Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences current issue, 2015

Abnormal cortical circuitry and function as well as distortions in the modulatory neurological processes controlling cortical plasticity have been argued to underlie the origin of autism. Here, we chemically distorted those processes using an antidepressant drug-exposure model to generate ...

PTP{sigma} functions as a presynaptic receptor for the glypican-4/LRRTM4 complex and is essential for excitatory synaptic transmission [Neuroscience]

10-Feb-2015 | Ji Seung Ko; Gopal Pramanik; Ji Won Um; Ji Seon Shim; Dongmin Lee; Kee Hun Kim; Gug-Young Chung; Giuseppe Condomitti ..., Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences current issue, 2015

Leukocyte common antigen-related receptor protein tyrosine phosphatases—comprising LAR, PTPδ, and PTPσ—are synaptic adhesion molecules that organize synapse development. Here, we identify glypican 4 (GPC-4) as a ligand for PTPσ. GPC-4 showed strong (nanomolar) affinity and heparan sulfate ...

Sound representation in higher language areas during language generation [Neuroscience]

10-Feb-2015 | Lorenzo Magrassi; Giuseppe Aromataris; Alessandro Cabrini; Valerio Annovazzi-Lodi; Andrea Moro, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences current issue, 2015

How language is encoded by neural activity in the higher-level language areas of humans is still largely unknown. We investigated whether the electrophysiological activity of Broca’s area correlates with the sound of the utterances produced. During speech perception, the electric cortical ...

Therapeutic mechanisms of high-frequency stimulation in Parkinson's disease and neural restoration via loop-based reinforcement [Neuroscience]

10-Feb-2015 | Sabato Santaniello; Michelle M. McCarthy; Erwin B. Montgomery Jr.; John T. Gale; Nancy Kopell; Sridevi V. Sarma, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences current issue, 2015

High-frequency deep brain stimulation (HFS) is clinically recognized to treat parkinsonian movement disorders, but its mechanisms remain elusive. Current hypotheses suggest that the therapeutic merit of HFS stems from increasing the regularity of the firing patterns in the basal ganglia (BG). ...

How many proteins does it take to gate hair cell mechanotransduction? [Neuroscience]

03-Feb-2015 | Paul Albert Fuchs, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences current issue, 2015

Components of the Mechanotransducer Complex Mechanosensory hair cells of the inner ear transduce sound or head motion into electrical signals through the gating of mechanically coupled ion channels. Although many cell types can respond to mechanical force (1), the disposition of ...

Subunit determination of the conductance of hair-cell mechanotransducer channels [Neuroscience]

03-Feb-2015 | Maryline Beurg; Wei Xiong; Bo Zhao; Ulrich Müller; Robert Fettiplace, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences current issue, 2015

Cochlear hair cells convert sound stimuli into electrical signals by gating of mechanically sensitive ion channels in their stereociliary (hair) bundle. The molecular identity of this ion channel is still unclear, but its properties are modulated by accessory proteins. Two such proteins are ...

The effects of bilingualism on the white matter structure of the brain [Neuroscience]

03-Feb-2015 | Christos Pliatsikas; Elisavet Moschopoulou; James Douglas Saddy, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences current issue, 2015

Recent studies suggest that learning and using a second language (L2) can affect brain structure, including the structure of white matter (WM) tracts. This observation comes from research looking at early and older bilingual individuals who have been using both their first and second languages on ...
