Cell-type diversity in the brain enables the assembly of complex neural circuits, whose organization and patterns of activity give rise to brain function. However, the identification of distinct neuronal populations within a given brain region is often complicated by a lack of objective criteria to distinguish one neuronal population from another. In the… (More)
The subthalamic nucleus-globus pallidus network is a potential source of oscillations in Parkinson's disease, but the mechanism is unknown. In this issue of Neuron, Chu et al. (2015) present a cortically driven form of heterosynaptic plasticity that could promote oscillatory activity after dopamine depletion.
The identification of distinct cell types in the basal ganglia has been critical to our understanding of basal ganglia function and the treatment of neurological disorders. The external globus pallidus (GPe) is a key contributor to motor suppressing pathways in the basal ganglia, yet its neuronal heterogeneity has remained an untapped resource for… (More)
