Bayesian binning beats approximate alternatives: estimating peri-stimulus time histograms
(MIT Press, 2008) - Journal article
The peristimulus time histogram (PSTH) and its more continuous cousin, the spike density function (SDF) are staples in the analytic toolkit of neurophysiologists. The former is usually obtained by binning spike trains, ...
(2008) - Journal article
Mammalian brains consist of billions of neurons, each capable of independent electrical activity. Information in the brain is represented by the pattern of activation of this large neural population, forming a neural code. ...
Common HLA alleles associated with health, but not with facial attractiveness
(2007-07) - Journal article
Three adaptive hypotheses have been proposed to explain the link between the human leucocyte antigen (HLA) genes, health measures and facial attractiveness: inbreeding avoidance, heterozygote advantage and frequency-dependent ...
Differential expression and functional characterization of luteinizing hormone receptor splice variants in human luteal cells : Implications for luteolysis
(2009-06) - Journal article
The human LH receptor (LHR) plays a key role in luteal function and the establishment of pregnancy through its interaction with the gonadotropins LH and human chorionic gonadotropin. We previously identified four splice ...
