Auditory steady-state responses (ASSRs) are basic neural responses used to probe the ability of auditory circuits to produce synchronous activity to repetitive external stimulation. Reduced ASSR has been observed in patients with schizophrenia, especially at 40 Hz. Although ASSR is a translatable biomarker with a potential both in animal models and...
Article
Abnormalities of auditory steady state responses (ASSR) and the effects of antipsychotic drugs on ASSR have been investigated in patients with schizophrenia. It is presumed that effects of drugs do not directly reflect on ASSR, because of ASSR abnormalities associated with schizophrenia. Therefore, to investigate the direct effect of drugs on ASSR,...

An increase in number of neurons is presumed to underlie the enhancement of cognitive abilities in brain evolution. The evolution of human cognition is then expected to have accompanied a prolongation of net neural-processing time due to the accumulation of processing time of individual neurons over an expanded number of neurons. Here, we confirmed...
Article
The common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus), a New World monkey, serves as a useful animal model in clinical and basic neuroscience. The present study recorded scalp auditory evoked potentials (AEP) in non-sedated common marmoset monkeys (n = 4) using a noninvasive method similar to that used in humans, and aimed to identify nonhuman primate correlate...

Appropriate processing of others’ facial emotions is a fundamental ability of primates in social situations. Several moods and anxiety disorders such as depression cause a negative bias in the perception of facial emotions. Depressive patients show abnormalities of activity and gray matter volume in the perigenual portion of the anterior cingulate...

Our daily lives are filled with rhythmic movements, such as walking, sports, and dancing, but the mechanisms by which the brain controls rhythmic movements are poorly understood. In this review, we examine the literature on neuropsychological studies of patients with focal brain lesions, and functional brain imaging studies primarily using finger-t...
Article
Background Anaesthesia is often required in common marmosets undergoing various procedures. The aim of this study was to evaluate anaesthetic and cardiopulmonary effects of alfaxalone, alfaxalone‐ketamine and alfaxalone‐butorphanol‐medetomidine in common marmosets. Methods The following treatments were repeatedly administered to seven female commo...

The anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), surrounding the genu of the corpus callosum, plays important roles in emotional processing and is functionally divided into the dorsal, perigenual, and subgenual subregions (dACC, pgACC, and sgACC, respectively). Previous studies have suggested that the pgACC and sgACC have distinctive roles in the regulation of...

The auditory cortex integrates auditory information over time to obtain neural representations of sound events, the time scale of which critically affects perception. This work investigated the species differences in the time scale of integration by comparing humans and monkeys regarding how their scalp-recorded cortical auditory evoked potentials...
Article
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 common marmosets. Marmosets were trained to choose between a low-reward (a piece of cake) requirin...
Article
The anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) is crucial for emotional processing, and its abnormal activities contributes to mood disorders. The ACC is divided into three subregions: the dorsal ACC (dACC), perigenual ACC (pgACC), and subgenual ACC (sgACC). Although these regions have been implicated in emotional processing, the dACC is more involved in cogn...
Article
Eye tracking systems are used to investigate eyes position and gaze patterns presumed as eye contact in humans. Eye contact is a useful biomarker of social communication and known to be deficient in patients with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). Interestingly, the same eye tracking systems have been used to directly compare face scanning patterns...
Article
Background: It remains unknown how single-shot anesthesia influences physical parameters, especially respiratory function and blood oxygen level of common marmosets (Callithrix jacchus) which came to be used for laboratory research. Methods: We measured blood oxygen levels, both before and after oxygenation, in 13 common marmosets under two sing...
Article
Auditory cortex integrates sound signals over time for obtaining neural representations of auditory events, the time window of which affects perception and cognition. Species differences between human and macaque monkey in the time window of auditory cortical processing were investigated by comparing (1) how the cortical auditory evoked potentials...
Article
The ability to categorize social information is essential to survive in a primate's social group. In the monkey brain, there are neural systems to categorize social information. Among these, the relationship between the amygdala and the ventrolateral prefrontal cortex (vlPFC) has recently gained focus with regard to emotion regulation. However, the...

When sounds occur with temporally structured patterns, we can feel a rhythm. To memorize a rhythm, perception of its temporal patterns and organization of them into a hierarchically structured sequence are necessary. On the other hand, rhythm perception can often cause unintentional body movements. Thus, we hypothesized that rhythm information can...
Article
We examined behavioral features of isochronous repetitive movements in two macaques. The monkeys were required to press a button repetitively in response to external cues. If the cue-intervals were constant (isochronous) and sub-second, the reaction time was shorter than in random-interval condition. In contrast, in the supra-second isochronous con...
