Development and evolution of the pallium.
The neocortex is the most representative and elaborated structure of the mammalian brain and is related to the achievement of complex cognitive capabilities, which are disturbed followingExpand

Histogenetic compartments of the mouse centromedial and extended amygdala based on gene expression patterns during development
The amygdala controls emotional and social behavior and regulates instinctive reflexes such as defense and reproduction by way of descending projections to the hypothalamus and brainstem. TheExpand

Subdivisions and derivatives of the chicken subpallium based on expression of LIM and other regulatory genes and markers of neuron subpopulations during development
Here we studied the combinatory expression patterns of nine developmental regulatory genes and six markers of different neuronal subpopulations in the telencephalic subpallium of developing chicken,Expand

Multiple telencephalic and extratelencephalic embryonic domains contribute neurons to the medial extended amygdala
Dysfunctions in emotional control and social behavior are behind human neuropsychiatric disorders, some of which are associated with an alteration of amygdalar development. The medial extendedExpand

Contribution of Genoarchitecture to Understanding Forebrain Evolution and Development, with Particular Emphasis on the Amygdala
The amygdala is a forebrain center involved in functions and behaviors that are critical for survival (such as control of the neuroendocrine system and homeostasis, and reproduction and fear/escapeExpand

Differential expression of LIM-homeodomain factors in Cajal-Retzius cells of primates, rodents, and birds.
Reelin-expressing Cajal-Retzius (CR) cells are among the earliest generated cells in the mammalian cerebral cortex and are believed to be crucial for both the development and the evolution of aExpand

Similarities and differences in the forebrain expression of Lhx1 and Lhx5 between chicken and mouse: Insights for understanding telencephalic development and evolution
We compared expression of the paralogous LIM‐homeodomain genes Lhx1 and Lhx5 in the developing rostral forebrain of mouse and chicken. Both genes are expressed in similar patterns in the septum,Expand

Combinatorial expression of Lef1, Lhx2, Lhx5, Lhx9, Lmo3, Lmo4, and Prox1 helps to identify comparable subdivisions in the developing hippocampal formation of mouse and chicken
We carried out a study of the expression patterns of seven developmental regulatory genes (Lef1, Lhx2, Lhx9, Lhx5, Lmo3, Lmo4, and Prox1), in combination with topological position, to identify theExpand

Expression of cLhx6 and cLhx7/8 suggests a pallido-pedunculo-preoptic origin for the lateral and medial parts of the avian bed nucleus of the stria terminalis
We investigated the origin of the avian bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BST) and other parts of the avian subpallial amygdala, by studying the expression of the LIM-homeobox chick genes Lhx6Expand

Contribution of Genoarchitecture to Understanding Hippocampal Evolution and Development
The hippocampal formation is a highly conserved structure of the medial pallium that works in association with the entorhinal cortex, playing a key role in memory formation and spatial navigation.Expand
