Evolving gene/transcript definitions significantly alter the interpretation of GeneChip data
This work reorganized probes on more than a dozen popular GeneChips into gene-, transcript- and exon-specific probe sets in light of up-to-date genome, cDNA/EST clustering and single nucleotide polymorphism information, and demonstrates that the original Affymetrix probe set definitions are inaccurate.

Gene expression for glutamic acid decarboxylase is reduced without loss of neurons in prefrontal cortex of schizophrenics.
The prefrontal cortex of schizophrenics shows reduced expression for GAD in the absence of significant cell loss, bringing about an activity-dependent down-regulation associated with the functional hypoactivity of the DLPFC and implying that overall cortical neuronal migration had not been compromised in development.

Cerebral Cortex
Cerebral Cortex publishes papers on the development, organization, plasticity, and function of the cerebral cortex, including the hippocampus. Studies with clear relevance to the cerebral cortex ,Expand
Genetic relationship between five psychiatric disorders estimated from genome-wide SNPs
Empirical evidence of shared genetic etiology for psychiatric disorders can inform nosology and encourages the investigation of common pathophysiologies for related disorders. Expand

  • 1 October 2001
High-frequency synchronous activity of neurons in the cerebral cortex and thalamus is a concomitant of discrete conscious events. In the primate thalamus, a newly identified population of neuronsExpand
Intracortical connectivity of architectonic fields in the somatic sensory, motor and parietal cortex of monkeys
Anterograde and retrograde transport methods were used to study the corticocortical connectivity of areas 3a, 3b, 1, 2, 5, 4 and 6 of the monkey cerebral cortex, finding possible multiple representations of the body surface in the component fields of the first somatic sensory area (SI). Expand
Viewpoint: the core and matrix of thalamic organization

  • 8 April 1998
A case is made for the presence of a matrix of superficially-projecting cells, not confined to the intralaminar nuclei but extending throughout the whole thalamus, essential for the binding of multiple aspects of sensory experience into a single framework of consciousness. Expand
Differences in quantal amplitude reflect GluR4- subunit number at corticothalamic synapses on two populations of thalamic neurons
Low-frequency thalamocortical oscillations that underlie drowsiness and slow-wave sleep depend on rhythmic inhibition of relay cells by neurons in the reticular nucleus (RTN) under the influence ofExpand
Altered cortical glutamatergic and GABAergic signal transmission with glial involvement in depression
The astroglial distribution of the two glutamate transporters and l-glutamate-ammonia ligase strongly links glia to the pathophysiology of depression and challenges the conventional notion that depression is solely a neuronal disorder. Expand
A new parcellation of the human thalamus on the basis of histochemical staining
Serial sections of human thalami stained for Nissl substance, myelin, cytochrome oxidase and acetylcholinesterase revealed a parcellation of the nuclei that could be correlated with that used in the macaque monkey thalamus, and human nuclei were re-named using the monkey nomenclature. Expand
