We here show that social rank, as assessed by competition for a running wheel, influences ocular dominance plasticity in adult male mice. Dominant animals showed a clear ocular dominance shift after 4 days of MD, whereas their submissive cagemates did not. NMDA receptor activation, reduced GABA inhibition, and serotonin transmission were necessary for this plasticity, but not sufficient to explain the difference between dominant and submissive animals. In contrast, prefrontal dopamine concentrat...

The development of executive function (EF) in early childhood contributes to social and academic aspects of school readiness and facilitates emerging self-regulatory competence. Numerous efforts are underway to identify aspects of early brain development that contribute to emerging EF. Existing research supports the importance of multiple white matter tracts for EF in older children and adults. However, this research has not been extended to young children. In this study, we consider neonatal wh...

The superior temporal sulcus (STS) is an important region for speech comprehension. The greater language network is known to exhibit asymmetries in both structure and function, and consistent with that theory are reports of STS structural asymmetry in MRI-based, morphological measures such as mean thickness and sulcal depth. However, it is not known how these individual STS structural asymmetries relate to each other, or how they interact with the broader language asymmetry that manifests in oth...

A resting-state network centered at the precuneus has been recently proposed as a precuneus network (PCUN) or “parietal memory network”. Due to its spatial adjacency and overlapping with the default mode network (DMN), it is still not consensus to consider PCUN and DMN separately. Whether considering PCUN and DMN as different networks is a critical question that influences our understanding of brain functions and impairments. Previous resting-state studies using multiple methodologies have demon...

Transgenic rodents expressing Cre recombinase cell specifically are used for exploring mechanisms regulating behavior, including those mediated by cholinergic signaling. However, it was recently reported that transgenic mice overexpressing a bacterial artificial chromosome containing choline acetyltransferase (ChAT) gene, for synthesizing the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, present with multiple vesicular acetylcholine transporter (VAChT) gene copies, resulting in altered cholinergic tone and ac...
