Direct insular recordings in humans reveal that contrary to several prominent models of speech production, it is not engaged in pre-articulatory planning, but in auditory and somatosensory components of speech.
Direct cortical recordings in humans link the spectral structure of local field potentials to inhibition/disinhibition mechanisms coordinating sensorimotor neuronal populations during movement imagery.
Recalling either specific people or places from memory selectively recruits separate regions of human medial parietal cortex in a pattern reminiscent of how visual cortex represents these visual categories.
Expression of a Dravet syndrome-associated mutation in inhibitory neurons disrupts activity of brainstem respiratory neurons and diminishes respiratory behavior in conjunction with seizures and premature death.
Intracranial recordings of human brain activity during awakening from general anesthesia exhibit a brief brain state not seen during loss of consciousness, in which stimuli elicit large electrophysiological responses that resemble those seen in sleep.
Focal optogenetic stimulation strengthens functional connectivity between primary somatosensory and motor cortices in macaques, in a manner consistent with a Hebbian model of stimulus-driven plasticity.
