The middle temporal visual area in the macaque: Myeloarchitecture, connections, functional properties and topographic organization
The location, topographic organization, and function of the middle temporal visual area (MT) in the macaque monkey was studied using anatomical and physiological techniques. MT is a small,Expand

KLF Family Members Regulate Intrinsic Axon Regeneration Ability
Containing Neuronal Exuberance In rats and mice, around the time of birth, neurons of the central nervous system switch from a growth mode and lose their ability to regenerate. Studying retinalExpand

The projections from striate cortex (V1) to areas V2 and V3 in the macaque monkey: Asymmetries, areal boundaries, and patchy connections
The organization of projections from V1 to areas V2 and V3 in the macaque monkey was studied with a combination of anatomical tecniques, including lesions and tracer injections made in differentExpand

Microtubule Stabilization Reduces Scarring and Causes Axon Regeneration After Spinal Cord Injury
Taxol stimulates the capacity of axons to grow after spinal cord injury. Hypertrophic scarring and poor intrinsic axon growth capacity constitute major obstacles for spinal cord repair. TheseExpand

Identification of the major proteins that promote neuronal process outgrowth on Schwann cells in vitro
Schwann cells have a unique role in regulating the growth of axons during regeneration and presumably during development. Here we show that Schwann cells are the best substrate yet identified forExpand

Krüppel-like Factor 7 engineered for transcriptional activation promotes axon regeneration in the adult corticospinal tract
Axon regeneration in the central nervous system normally fails, in part because of a developmental decline in the intrinsic ability of CNS projection neurons to extend axons. Members of the KLFExpand

The pattern of interhemispheric connections and its relationship to extrastriate visual areas in the macaque monkey
The distribution of interhemispheric connections was studied in extrastriate visual cortex of the macaque monkey. Callosal fiber terminations were identified by staining for anterograde degenerationExpand

Purified N-cadherin is a potent substrate for the rapid induction of neurite outgrowth
N-cadherin is the predominant mediator of calcium-dependent adhesion in the nervous system (Takeichi, M. 1988. Development (Camb.). 102: 639- 655). Investigations using antibodies to block N-cadherinExpand

Fibroblast growth factor receptor signaling in Xenopus retinal axon extension.
Fibroblast growth factor receptors (FGFRs) and N-cadherin both regulate axon extension in developing Xenopus retinal ganglion cells (RGCs). Cultured cerebellar neurons have been shown to require FGFRExpand

A new in vitro model of the glial scar inhibits axon growth
Astrocytes respond to central nervous system (CNS) injury with reactive astrogliosis and participate in the formation of the glial scar, an inhibitory barrier for axonal regeneration. Little is knownExpand
