  • Kolb, Bryan; Teskey, G. Campbell; Gibb, Robbin L. (Frontiers Research FoundationArts and ScienceDepartment of NeuroscienceUniversity of LethbridgeUniversity of Calgary, 2010)
    An important development in behavioral neuroscience in the past 20 years has been the demonstration that it is possible to stimulate functional recovery after cerebral injury in laboratory animals. Rodent models of ...

    Stress represents a critical influence on motor system function and has been shown to impair movement performance. We hypothesized that stress-induced motor impairments are due to brain-specific changes in miRNA and ...

    Executive Function (EF) refers to important socio-emotional and cognitive skills that are known to be highly correlated with both academic and life success. EF is a blanket term that is considered to include self-regulation, ...
  • Akaho, Shotaro; Higuchi, Sho; Iwasaki, Taishi; Hino, Hideitsu; Tatsuno, Masami; Murata, Noboru (IOP Publishing, 2016)
    We propose a method to extract connectivity between neurons for extracellularly recorded multiple spike trains. The method removes pseudo-correlation caused by propagation of information along an indirect pathway, and ...

    A wide array of central nervous system complications, neurological deficits, and cognitive impairments occur and persist as a result of systemic cancer and cancer treatments. This condition is known as chemo brain and it ...
  • Kolb, Bryan; Muhammad, Arif (Frontiers MediaArts and ScienceDepartment of NeuroscienceUniversity of Lethbridge, 2014)
    A fundamental property of the brain is its capacity to change with a wide variety of experiences, including injury. Although there are spontaneous reparative changes following injury, these changes are rarely sufficient ...
  • Lansink, Carien S.; Goltstein, Pieter M.; Lankelma, Jan V.; McNaughton, Bruce L.; Pennartz, Cyriel M. A. (Public Library of ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of NeuroscienceUniversity of AmsterdamUniversity of Lethbridge, 2009)
    Associating spatial locations with rewards is fundamental to survival in natural environments and requires the integrity of the hippocampus and ventral striatum. In joint multineuron recordings from these areas, ...
  • Whishaw, Ian Q.; Kolb, Bryan (Produced at the University of Lethbridge, 1978)
    A film by Ian Q. Whishaw and Bryan Kolb based on research by Thomas Wishart, The University of Saskatchewan. Photography by Bryan Kolb and Landy L. Esau. Produced at the University of Lethbridge.

  • Hehar, Harleen; Yeates, Keith; Kolb, Bryan; Esser, Michael J.; Mychasiuk, Richelle (Public Library of ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of NeuroscienceUniversity of CalgaryUniversity of Lethbridge, 2015)
    Impulsivity and poor executive control have been implicated in the pathogenesis of many developmental and neuropsychiatric disorders. Similarly, concussions/mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBI) have been associated with ...
  • Thomas, Brittany L.; Karl, Jenni M.; Whishaw, Ian Q. (Frontiers Research FoundationArts and ScienceDepartment of NeuroscienceUniversity of Lethbridge, 2015)
    The Dual Visuomotor Channel Theory proposes that visually guided reaching is a composite of movements, a Reach that advances the hand to contact the target and a Grasp that shapes the digits for target purchase. The theory ...
  • Nie, Yimin; Fellous, Jean-Marc; Tatsuno, Masami (Frontiers Research FoundationArts and ScienceDepartment of NeuroscienceUniversity of LethbridgeUniversity of Arizona, 2014)
    The characterization of functional network structures among multiple neurons is essential to understanding neural information processing. Information geometry (IG),a theory developed for investigating a space of probability ...
