... volumes (HVC and Area X) in willow tits (Poecile montanus) , closely related to black-capped chickadees, and in great tits (Parus major) , more closely related to blue tits, from the same area around Oulu, Finland. Both species had larger gonads in spring than during the rest of the year. Great tit males...

... data point mainly to the caudolateral nidopallium, which shares both functional and structural features with the mammalian prefrontal cortex. As more data on the neural mechanisms of complex cognition in birds accrue, skepticism about those mental capacities should continue to wane. Songbirds HVC...

... subdivisions of the song system. There are positive correlations between song complexity and the volume of motor song system nucleus HVC, both between and within species. The correlations appear to arise because individual differences in volume lead to differences in capacity for learning. The differences...

... of Nissl-defined song-control nuclei (HVc, Area X, and the robust nucleus of the archistriatum) were reconstructed. In contrast to other cardueline finches, GnRH immunoreactivity was relatively stable across the year, exhibiting only modest seasonal variation. The song control system, on the other hand...
