    • CaMKII inhibitor 1 (CaMK2N1) mRNA is upregulated following LTP induction in hippocampal slices 

      Astudillo Maya, Andrea; Karmelic Visinteiner, Daniel; Casas Atala, Bárbara; Otmakhov, Nikolai; Palma Alvarado, Verónica; Sanhueza Toha, María Magdalena (Wiley, 2020)
      CaMK2N1 and CaMK2N2 (also known as CaMKIIN alpha and beta) are endogenous inhibitors of calcium/calmodulin-dependent kinase II (CaMKII), an enzyme critical for memory and long-term potentiation (LTP), a form of synaptic ...
    • Electrical resonance in the h frequency range in olfactory amygdala neurons 

      Vera, Jorge; Pezzoli, Mauricio; Pereira, Ulises; Bacigalupo Vicuña, Juan; Sanhueza Toha, María Magdalena (PLOS One, 2014)
      The cortical amygdala receives direct olfactory inputs and is thought to participate in processing and learning of biologically relevant olfactory cues. As for other brain structures implicated in learning, the principal ...
    • Modulation of frequency preference in heterogeneous populations of theta-resonant neurons 

      Vera, Jorge; Pereira, Ulises; Reynaert, Bryan; Bacigalupo Vicuña, Juan; Sanhueza Toha, María Magdalena (Pergamon-Elsevier, 2020)
      Neurons from several brain regions resonate in the theta frequency range (4-12 Hz), displaying a higher voltage response to oscillatory currents at a preferred 'resonant' frequency (f(R)). Subthreshold resonance could ...
