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.

  1. Non-motor symptoms are common aspects of Parkinson’s disease (PD) occurring even at the prodromal stage of the disease and greatly affecting the quality of life. Here, we investigated whether non-motor symptom...

  5. Previous data show that serotonin 2C (5-HT2C) and cannabinoid 1 (CB1) receptors have a role in the modulation of sleep–wake cycle. Namely, antagonists on these receptors promoted wakefulness and inhibited rapid e...
