Genetic dissection of an amygdala microcircuit that gates conditioned fear
The role of different amygdala nuclei (neuroanatomical subdivisions) in processing Pavlovian conditioned fear has been studied extensively, but the function of the heterogeneous neuronal subtypesExpand

Monosynaptic Restriction of Transsynaptic Tracing from Single, Genetically Targeted Neurons
There has never been a wholesale way of identifying neurons that are monosynaptically connected either to some other cell group or, especially, to a single cell. The best available tools,Expand

Parallel processing strategies of the primate visual system
Incoming sensory information is sent to the brain along modality-specific channels corresponding to the five senses. Each of these channels further parses the incoming signals into parallel streamsExpand

Retrograde neuronal tracing with a deletion-mutant rabies virus
We have constructed a deletion-mutant rabies virus encoding EGFP and find it to be an excellent tool for studying detailed morphology and physiology of neurons projecting to injection sites withinExpand

Immunochemical characterization of inhibitory mouse cortical neurons: Three chemically distinct classes of inhibitory cells
The cerebral cortex has diverse types of inhibitory neurons. In rat cortex, past research has shown that parvalbumin (PV), somatostatin (SOM), calretinin (CR), and cholecystokinin (CCK) label fourExpand

Functional Specialization of Seven Mouse Visual Cortical Areas
To establish the mouse as a genetically tractable model for high-order visual processing, we characterized fine-scale retinotopic organization of visual cortex and determined functionalExpand

The basic laminar organization of excitatory local circuitry in the primary visual cortex of the macaque monkey is similar to that described previously in the cat's visual cortex (Gilbert 1983). ThisExpand

V1 spinal neurons regulate the speed of vertebrate locomotor outputs
The neuronal networks that generate vertebrate movements such as walking and swimming are embedded in the spinal cord. These networks, which are referred to as central pattern generators (CPGs), areExpand

Excitatory cortical neurons form fine-scale functional networks
The specificity of cortical neuron connections creates columns of functionally similar neurons spanning from the pia to the white matter. Here we investigate whether there is an additional, finerExpand

Genetic Dissection of Neural Circuits
Understanding the principles of information processing in neural circuits requires systematic characterization of the participating cell types and their connections, and the ability to measure andExpand
