Systems Neuroscience

Section edited by Tianzi Jiang

This section covers all aspects of system neuroscience. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the understanding of structure and function of neural circuits, systems and networks from microscale to macroscale, how high-level cognitive functions such as emotion, memory, attention language, and self-awareness manifest on neural circuits and brain networks, and the related neurotechniques.

    Why to cooperate is better than to compete: brain and personality components

    Cooperation and competition were compared in the present study. Brain correlates (electroencephalography, EEG frequency band, delta, theta, alpha, and beta) and hemodynamic measure of functional near-infrared...

    A receptor-based analysis of local ecosystems in the human brain

    As a complex system, the brain is a self-organizing entity that depends on local interactions among cells. Its regions (anatomically defined nuclei and areas) can be conceptualized as cellular ecosystems, but ...

    The variability of motor evoked potential latencies in neurosurgical motor mapping by preoperative navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation

    Recording of motor evoked potentials (MEPs) is used during navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (nTMS) motor mapping to locate motor function in the human brain. However, factors potentially underlying ...

    Neurophysiological modulation of rapid emotional face processing is associated with impulsivity traits

    Sensori-perceptual processing of emotional stimuli under attentive conditions effectively prevents response disinhibition. This is observed saliently in low-impulsive people, because of their high sensitivity ...

    Navigational choice between reversal and curve during acidic pH avoidance behavior in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Under experimental conditions, virtually all behaviors of Caenorhabditis elegans are achieved by combinations of simple locomotion, including forward, reversal movement, turning by deep body bending, and gradual ...
