Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Psychosocial stress reactivity is associated with decreased whole-brain network efficiency and increased amygdala centrality.

Cognitive and emotional functions are supported by the coordinated activity of a distributed network of brain regions. This coordinated activity may be disrupted by psychosocial stress, resulting in the dysfunction of cognitive and emotional processes….

Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Impairment of the context preexposure facilitation effect in juvenile rats by neonatal alcohol exposure is associated with decreased Egr-1 mRNA expression in the prefrontal cortex.

The context preexposure facilitation effect (CPFE) is a variant of contextual fear conditioning in which learning about the context (preexposure) and associating the context with a shock (training) occur on separate occasions. The CPFE is sensitive to …

Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: “Fast” versus “slow” word integration of visual and olfactory objects: EEG biomarkers of decision speed variability.

In psychological experiments, behavioral speed varies across trials, and this variation is often associated with corresponding fluctuations in cortical activity. Little is known about such cortical variations in semantic priming tasks where target word…

Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Blockade of dopamine D? receptors, but not D? receptors, decreases motivation in a novel effort-discounting paradigm in common marmosets.

Effort-based decision-making paradigms have recently been used to measure motivation in healthy subjects and patients with neuropsychiatric disorders. In the present study, we developed a novel effort-discounting paradigm using a touch-panel system in …

Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Pain chronification and chronic pain impair a defensive behavior, but not the ability of acute pain to facilitate it, through the activation of an endogenous analgesia circuit.

The endogenous ability to decrease pain perception during life-threatening situations is crucial to the prevention of recuperative behaviors and to leave the subject free to engage in appropriated defensive responses. We have previously shown that acut…

Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Acetaminophen disrupts memory in object recognition and increases extracellular signal-regulated kinase phosphorylation in male mice.

Acetaminophen (also known as paracetamol) is a commonly used over-the-counter pain medication, but recent evidence suggests that a single exposure or prenatal exposure may have significant behavioral effects. This investigation aimed to determine wheth…
