Green fluorescent protein expression and colocalization with calretinin, parvalbumin, and somatostatin in the GAD67‐GFP knock‐in mouse
γ‐aminobutyric acid (GABA)ergic neurons in the central nervous system regulate the activity of other neurons and play a crucial role in information processing. To assist an advance in the research ofExpand

Nav1.1 Localizes to Axons of Parvalbumin-Positive Inhibitory Interneurons: A Circuit Basis for Epileptic Seizures in Mice Carrying an Scn1a Gene Mutation
Loss-of-function mutations in human SCN1A gene encoding Nav1.1 are associated with a severe epileptic disorder known as severe myoclonic epilepsy in infancy. Here, we generated and characterized aExpand

Lhx6 Activity Is Required for the Normal Migration and Specification of Cortical Interneuron Subtypes
The cerebral cortex contains two main neuronal cell populations, the excitatory glutamatergic (pyramidal) neurons and the inhibitory interneurons, which synthesize GABA and constitute 20–30% of allExpand

Molecular Identity of Periglomerular and Short Axon Cells
Within glomeruli, the initial sites of synaptic integration in the olfactory pathway, olfactory sensory axons terminate on dendrites of projection and juxtaglomerular (JG) neurons. JG cells form atExpand

A Subpopulation of Olfactory Bulb GABAergic Interneurons Is Derived from Emx1- and Dlx5/6-Expressing Progenitors
The subventricular zone (SVZ) of the postnatal brain continuously generates olfactory bulb (OB) interneurons. We show that calretinin+, calbindin+, and dopaminergic (TH+) periglomerular OBExpand

Hardwiring the Brain: Endocannabinoids Shape Neuronal Connectivity
The roles of endocannabinoid signaling during central nervous system development are unknown. We report that CB1 cannabinoid receptors (CB1Rs) are enriched in the axonal growth cones ofExpand

A Specialized Subclass of Interneurons Mediates Dopaminergic Facilitation of Amygdala Function
The amygdala is under inhibitory control from the cortex through the activation of local GABAergic interneurons. This inhibition is greatly diminished during heightened emotional states due toExpand

Transient Neuronal Populations Are Required to Guide Callosal Axons: A Role for Semaphorin 3C
Neurons, glia, and callosal axons operate as a “ménage à trois” in the development of the corpus callosum.

Postnatal Differentiation of Basket Cells from Slow to Fast Signaling Devices
Gamma frequency (30–100 Hz) oscillations in the mature cortex underlie higher cognitive functions. Fast signaling in GABAergic interneuron networks plays a key role in the generation of theseExpand

GABAergic Neurons Are Less Selective to Stimulus Orientation than Excitatory Neurons in Layer II/III of Visual Cortex, as Revealed by In Vivo Functional Ca2+ Imaging in Transgenic Mice
Most neurons in the visual cortex are selectively responsive to visual stimulation of a narrow range of orientations, and GABAergic neurons are considered to play a role in the formation of suchExpand
