Thalamic input to distal apical dendrites in neocortical layer 1 is massive and highly convergent.
Input to apical dendritic tufts is now deemed crucial for associative learning, attention, and similar "feedback" interactions in the cerebral cortex. Excitatory input to apical tufts in neocorticalExpand

Unveiling the diversity of thalamocortical neuron subtypes
Our current understanding of thalamocortical (TC) circuits is largely based on studies investigating so‐called ‘specific’ thalamic nuclei, which receive and transmit sensory‐triggered input toExpand

Extracellular matrix molecules and synaptic plasticity: immunomapping of intracellular and secreted Reelin in the adult rat brain
Reelin, a large extracellular matrix glycoprotein, is secreted by several neuron populations in the developing and adult rodent brain. Secreted Reelin triggers a complex signaling pathway by bindingExpand

Insular cortex and neighboring fields in the cat: A redefinition based on cortical microarchitecture and connections with the thalamus
The insular areas of the cerebral cortex in carnivores remain vaguely defined and fragmentarily characterized. We have examined the cortical microarchitecture and thalamic connections of the insularExpand

Long-range projection neurons of the mouse ventral tegmental area: a single-cell axon tracing analysis
Pathways arising from the ventral tegmental area (VTA) release dopamine and other neurotransmitters during the expectation and achievement of reward, and are regarded as central links of the brainExpand

Anterograde axonal tracing with the subunit B of cholera toxin: a highly sensitive immunohistochemical protocol for revealing fine axonal morphology in adult and neonatal brains
We report an improved immunohistochemical protocol for revealing anterograde axonal transport of the subunit B of cholera toxin (CTB) which stains axons and terminals in great detail, so that singleExpand

Brainstem inputs to the ferret medial geniculate nucleus and the effect of early deafferentation on novel retinal projections to the auditory thalamus
Following specific neonatal brain lesions in rodents and ferrets, retinal axons have been induced to innervate the medial geniculate nucleus (MGN). Previous studies have suggested that reduction ofExpand

Cortical connections of the insular and adjacent parieto-temporal fields in the cat.
We present a comprehensive analysis of the cortical connections of the insular and adjacent cortical areas in the domestic cat by using microinjections of wheat-germ agglutinin conjugated toExpand

Reelin immunoreactivity in the adult neocortex: a comparative study in rodents, carnivores, and non-human primates
Recent evidence indicates that, in addition to playing a crucial role in early cortical development, intercellular signaling mediated by the protein Reelin may be widely active in the adultExpand

Reelin immunoreactivity in the adult primate brain: intracellular localization in projecting and local circuit neurons of the cerebral cortex, hippocampus and subcortical regions.
Reelin is a large secretable protein which is widely expressed by specific neuronal populations. In the embryonic brain, Reelin plays a signaling role critical for the correct positioning ofExpand
