  • Somatosensory Cortex Efficiently Processes Touch Located Beyond the Body. [Journal Article]
    Curr Biol 2019Miller LE, Fabio C, … Farnè A
  • The extent to which a tool is an extension of its user is a question that has fascinated writers and philosophers for centuries [1]. Despite two decades of research [2-7], it remains unknown how this could be instantiated at the neural level. To this aim, the present study combined behavior, electrophysiology and neuronal modeling to characterize how the human brain could treat a tool like an ext…
  • Autistic traits modulate cortical responses to affective but not discriminative touch. [Journal Article]
    Eur J Neurosci 2019Haggarty CJ, Malinowski P, … Walker SC
  • The sense of touch is primarily considered a discriminative and exteroceptive sense, facilitating the detection, manipulation and exploration of objects, via an array of low threshold mechanoreceptors and fast conducting Aβ afferents. However, a class of unmyelinated, low threshold mechanoreceptors identified in the hairy skin of mammals have been proposed to constitute a second, anatomically dis…
  • [Molecular mechanism of microRNA in regulating cochlear hair cell development]. [Review]
    Yi Chuan 2019; 41(11):994-1008Rao L, Meng FL, … Zhao XL
  • Deafness has become one of the most frequent health problems worldwide, and affects almost every age group. Hair cell damage or absence is the main cause of hearing loss, but there is no successful treatment to heal deafness. MicroRNA (miRNA), as a highly conserved endogenous non-coding small RNA, plays an important role in inner ear cochlea and hair cell development. In this review, we elaborate…
  • Premature birth, homeostatic plasticity and respiratory consequences of inflammation. [Review]
    Respir Physiol Neurobiol 2019; :103337Gauda EB, McLemore GL
  • Infants who are born premature can have persistent apnea beyond term gestation, reemergence of apnea associated with inflammation during infancy, increased risk of sudden unexplained death, and sleep disorder breathing during infancy and childhood. The autonomic nervous system, particularly the central neural networks that control breathing and peripheral and central chemoreceptors and mechanorec…
