    Decades of research identify the hippocampal formation as central to memory storage and recall. Events are stored via distributed population codes, the parameters of which (e.g., sparsity and overlap) determine both storage ...
  • Wilber, Aaron A.; Clark, Benjamin J.; Forster, Tyler C.; Tatsuno, Masami; McNaughton, Bruce L. (Society for NeuroscienceArts and ScienceDepartment of NeuroscienceUniversity of Lethbridge, 2014)
    Navigation requires coordination of egocentric and allocentric spatial reference frames and may involve vectorial computations relative to landmarks. Creation of are presentation of target heading relative to landmarks ...
  • Schwindel, C. Daniela; Ali, Karim; McNaughton, Bruce L.; Tatsuno, Masami (Society for NeuroscienceArts and ScienceDepartment of NeuroscienceUniversity of Lethbridge, 2014)
    Characterization of synaptic connectivity is essential to understanding neural circuit dynamics. For extracellularly recorded spike trains, indirect evidence for connectivity can be inferred from short-latency peaks in the ...

    The hippocampus is thought to contribute to episodic memory by creating, storing, and reactivating patterns that are unique to each experience, including different experiences that happen at the same location. Hippocampus ...

    Quantum gravity effects modify the Heisenberg's uncertainty principle to a generalized uncertainty principle (GUP). Earlier work showed that the GUP-induced corrections to the Schrödinger equation, when applied to a ...

    Context. The energetics in photo-dissociation regions (PDRs) are mainly regulated by the balance between the heating from the photo-electric effect acting on dust grains, and the cooling via the copious emission of photons ...

    Context. The HF molecule has been proposed as a sensitive tracer of diffuse interstellar gas, while at higher densities its abundance could be influenced heavily by freeze-out onto dust grains. Aims. We investigate the spatial ...

    The crystal structure of [Ph3PH]2[Ga2Br6], previously described as having a disordered anion in the space group R̄ 3, has been re-determined in the correct space group P̄ 3, where it is fully ordered. Interestingly, ...
  • Boeré, René T. (ACS PublicationsArts and ScienceDepartment of Chemistry and BiochemistryUniversity of Lethbridge, 2018)
    Crystal structures are reported for bicyclic 3CF3C6H4CN5S3 and monocyclic 3-CF3C6H4CN3S2, the latter of which is strongly dimerized in a cis-cofacial geometry [3-CF3C6H4CN3S2]2. The title compounds have previously been ...

    We present evidence that certain learning parameters can make a memory, even a very recent one, become independent of the hippocampus. We confirm earlier findings that damage to the hippocampus causes severe retrograde ...

    Chronic adrenalectomy (ADX) causes a gradual and selective loss of granule cells in the dentate gyrus (DG) of the rat.Here, we administered replacement corticosterone to rats beginning 10wk after ADX. We then tested them ...

    Long-term adrenalectomy (ADX) results in an extensive and specific loss of dentate gyrus granule cells in the hippocampus of adult rats. This loss of granule cells extends over a period of weeks to months and ultimately ...
