GABA through the Ages: Regulation of Cortical Function and Plasticity by Inhibitory Interneurons
Inhibitory interneurons comprise only about 20% of cortical neurons and thus constitute a clear minority compared to the vast number of excitatory projection neurons. They are, however, anExpand
Chondroitin sulfate acts in concert with semaphorin 3A to guide tangential migration of cortical interneurons in the ventral telencephalon.
Chondroitin sulfate (CS) carrying proteoglycans (PGs) are widely expressed in the nervous system, and there is increasing evidence that they regulate developmental mechanisms like neurite outgrowth,Expand
Disrupted-in-Schizophrenia 1 (DISC1) Is Necessary for the Correct Migration of Cortical Interneurons
Disrupted-in-Schizophrenia 1 (DISC1) is a prominent susceptibility gene for major psychiatric disorders. Previous work indicated that DISC1 plays an important role during neuronal proliferation andExpand
Bidirectional EphrinB3/EphA4 Signaling Mediates the Segregation of Medial Ganglionic Eminence- and Preoptic Area-Derived Interneurons in the Deep and Superficial Migratory Stream
The integration of interneuron subtypes into specific microcircuits is essential for proper cortical function. Understanding to what extent interneuron diversity is regulated and maintained duringExpand
Ephrins guide migrating cortical interneurons in the basal telencephalon
Cortical interneurons are born in the proliferative zones of the ganglionic eminences in the subpallium and migrate to the developing cortex along well-defined tangential routes. The mechanismsExpand
Neocortical Chandelier Cells Developmentally Shape Axonal Arbors through Reorganization but Establish Subcellular Synapse Specificity without Refinement
Visual Abstract Diverse types of cortical interneurons (INs) mediate various kinds of inhibitory control mechanisms to balance and shape network activity. Distinct IN subtypes develop uniquelyExpand
DISC1 knockdown impairs the tangential migration of cortical interneurons by affecting the actin cytoskeleton
Disrupted-in-Schizophrenia 1 (DISC1) is a risk gene for a spectrum of major mental disorders. It has been shown to regulate radial migration as well as dendritic arborization during neurodevelopmentExpand
EphA/ephrin A reverse signaling promotes the migration of cortical interneurons from the medial ganglionic eminence
Inhibitory interneurons control the flow of information and synchronization in the cerebral cortex at the circuit level. During embryonic development, multiple subtypes of cortical interneurons areExpand
A dual role of EphB1/ephrin-B3 reverse signaling on migrating striatal and cortical neurons originating in the preoptic area: should I stay or go away?
During embryonic development the preoptic area (POA) gives rise to two populations of neurons which are generated at the same time, cortical interneurons and striatal cells. POA-derived corticalExpand
Regional Cellular Environment Shapes Phenotypic Variations of Hippocampal and Neocortical Chandelier Cells
Different cortical regions processing distinct information, such as the hippocampus and the neocortex, share common cellular components and circuit motifs but form unique networks by modifying theseExpand
