Isolation of multipotent adult stem cells from the dermis of mammalian skin
We describe here the isolation of stem cells from juvenile and adult rodent skin. These cells derive from the dermis, and clones of individual cells can proliferate and differentiate in culture toExpand

Neurogenesis and stereological morphometry of calretinin‐immunoreactive GABAergic interneurons of the neostriatum
We determined the neurogenesis characteristics of a distinct subclass of rat striatum γ‐aminobutyric acidergic (GABAergic) interneurons expressing the calcium‐binding protein calretinin (CR).Expand

Pitx3 is required for motor activity and for survival of a subset of midbrain dopaminergic neurons
Mesencephalic dopaminergic (MesDA) neurons play crucial roles in motor and behavioral processes; their loss in Parkinson's disease (PD) results in striatal dopamine (DA) deficiency and hypokineticExpand

Serotonin4 (5-HT4) Receptor Agonists Are Putative Antidepressants with a Rapid Onset of Action
Current antidepressants are clinically effective only after several weeks of administration. Here, we show that serotonin(4) (5-HT(4)) agonists reduce immobility in the forced swimming test,Expand

Efferent connections of the centromedian and parafascicular thalamic nuclei in the squirrel monkey: A PHA‐L study of subcortical projections
The subcortical projections of the centromedian (CM) and the parafascicular (Pf) thalamic nuclei were examined in the squirrel monkey (Saimiri sciureus) by using the lectin PhaseolusExpand

Flow-based fiber tracking with diffusion tensor and q-ball data: Validation and comparison to principal diffusion direction techniques
In this study, we evaluate the performance of a flow-based surface evolution fiber tracking algorithm by means of a physical anisotropic diffusion phantom with known connectivity. We introduce aExpand

Efferent connections of the centromedian and parafascicular thalamic nuclei in the squirrel monkey: A light and electron microscopic study of the thalamostriatal projection in relation to striatal
The organization of the thalamostriatal projections arising from the centromedian (CM) and parafascicular (Pf) thalamic nuclei in the squirrel monkey (Saimiri sciureus) was studied at both light andExpand

GABA promotes survival but not proliferation of parvalbumin-immunoreactive interneurons in rodent neostriatum: an in vivo study with stereology
Amino-acid neurotransmitters regulate a wide variety of developmental processes in the mammalian CNS including neurogenesis, cell migration, and apoptosis. In order to investigate the role of GABA inExpand

Synaptic relationships between dopaminergic afferents and cortical or thalamic input in the sensorimotor territory of the striatum in monkey
The cerebral cortex and the intralaminar thalamic nuclei are the major sources of excitatory glutamatergic afferents to the striatum, whereas the midbrain catecholaminergic neurones provide a denseExpand

A multicenter pilot study of subcallosal cingulate area deep brain stimulation for treatment-resistant depression.
OBJECT Deep brain stimulation (DBS) has been recently investigated as a treatment for major depression. One of the proposed targets for this application is the subcallosal cingulate gyrus (SCG). ToExpand
