Reconstruction and Simulation of Neocortical Microcircuitry
UNLABELLED We present a first-draft digital reconstruction of the microcircuitry of somatosensory cortex of juvenile rat. The reconstruction uses cellular and synaptic organizing principles toExpand

Petilla terminology: nomenclature of features of GABAergic interneurons of the cerebral cortex
Neuroscience produces a vast amount of data from an enormous diversity of neurons. A neuronal classification system is essential to organize such data and the knowledge that is derived from them.Expand

Microstructure of the neocortex: Comparative aspects
The appearance of the neocortex, its expansion, and its differentiation in mammals, represents one of the principal episodes in the evolution of the vertebrate brain. One of the fundamental questionsExpand

Ultrastructure of Dendritic Spines: Correlation Between Synaptic and Spine Morphologies
Dendritic spines are critical elements of cortical circuits, since they establish most excitatory synapses. Recent studies have reported correlations between morphological and functional parametersExpand

New insights into the classification and nomenclature of cortical GABAergic interneurons
A systematic classification and accepted nomenclature of neuron types is much needed but is currently lacking. This article describes a possible taxonomical solution for classifying GABAergicExpand

The Pyramidal Cell in Cognition: A Comparative Study in Human and Monkey
Here we present evidence that the pyramidal cell phenotype varies markedly in the cortex of different anthropoid species. Regional and species differences in the size of, number of bifurcations in,Expand

Neocortical neuronal diversity: chemical heterogeneity revealed by colocalization studies of classic neurotransmitters, neuropeptides, calcium-binding proteins, and cell surface molecules.
The use of immunocytochemical and histochemical methods to study colocalization of two or more chemical compounds in the same neuron has revealed that there is a great diversity of neocorticalExpand
