The anatomical connections of the macaque monkey orbitofrontal cortex. A review.
TLDR
The medial sector of the OfC is selectively connected with the hippocampus, posterior parahippocampal cortex, posterior cingulate and retrosplenial areas, and area prostriata, while the lateral orbitofrontal sector is the most heavily connected with sensory areas of the gustatory, somatic and visual modalities, with premotor regions, and with the amygdala.

Posterior parietal cortex in rhesus monkey: II. Evidence for segregated corticocortical networks linking sensory and limbic areas with the frontal lobe
TLDR
The main finding is that each subdivision of parietal cortex is connected with a unique set of frontal areas, and although they are most prominent within a hemisphere, notable interhemispheric connections are also present. Expand
Posterior parietal cortex in rhesus monkey: I. Parcellation of areas based on distinctive limbic and sensory corticocortical connections
TLDR
The connections between posterior parietal areas and visual areas located on the medial surface of the occipital and parieto‐occipital cortex, containing peripheral representations of the visual field, represent a major previously unrecognized source of visual inputs to the parietal association cortex. Expand
The Primate Thalamus Is a Key Target for Brain Dopamine
TLDR
A novel dopaminergic system that targets the primate thalamus and is independent from the previously defined nigrostriatal, mesocortical, and mesolimbic dopaminaergic systems is proposed. Expand
Is Parkinson's Disease a Vesicular Dopamine Storage Disorder? Evidence from a Study in Isolated Synaptic Vesicles of Human and Nonhuman Primate Striatum
TLDR
DA storage vesicles from the striatum of six autopsied brains of PD patients and four controls are isolated for the first time and measurements of acidification in the vesicular preparations suggest that the DA storage impairment was localized at the VMAT2 protein itself. Expand
Rapid evolution of the visual system: a cellular assay of the retina and dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus of the Spanish wildcat and the domestic cat
TLDR
It is suggested that an increase in the severity of naturally occurring cell death is the most plausible mechanism that can account for the rapid evolutionary reduction in cell populations in this feline lineage. Expand
Distribution of the dopamine innervation in the macaque and human thalamus
TLDR
The maps provided here should be a useful reference in future experimental and neuroimaging studies aiming at clarifying the role of the thalamic dopaminergic system in health and in conditions involving brain dopamine, including Parkinson's disease, drug addiction and schizophrenia. Expand
Chronic inhalation of rotenone or paraquat does not induce Parkinson's disease symptoms in mice or rats
TLDR
A new animal model based on daily inoculation of neurotoxins in the nasal cavity of C57BL/6 mice for 30 days provides a new tool to assess the potential danger of environmental toxins as risk factors for development of Parkinson's disease. Expand
Loss of serum IGF-I input to the brain as an early biomarker of disease onset in Alzheimer mice
TLDR
Because nonhuman primates showed identically enhanced electroencephalogram (EEG) activity in response to systemic IGF-I, loss of the EEG signature of serum IGF- I may be exploited as a disease biomarker in AD patients. Expand
Topographic segregation of corticostriatal projections from posterior parietal subdivisions in the macaque monkey
TLDR
The neostriatal territories innervated by each subdivision can be correlated with the corresponding network, thus providing insight into the functional specializations of the striatum. Expand
