In the Neuroscience Gateway this week, read a summary of a recent Nature publication by Welch et al. describing a potential model for obsessive-compulsive disorder (Nature 448, 894–900 (2007)). Genes described in the text of many of the articles in the Neuroscience Gateway are linked to expression data in the Allen Brain Atlas.
This week’s Neuroscience Gateway Update also features new additions to the Research Highlights and Research Library sections. The Neurotechniques section features a new high-throughput knockout technique uses components from retroviruses to disrupt genes at random (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 104, 14406-14411 (2007)). Access to primary research articles from journals in the Nature family is free for three months.
Finally, be sure to visit the Neuroscience Gateway Conference Calendar to see upcoming conferences and events specially selected for the Neuroscience Community!
