Double retrograde tracer study of the corticostriatal projections to the cat caudate nucleus

The main findings of this study are that few double‐labeled cells were found after two injections in different sectors of the caudate nucleus and there were variations in the spatial organization of the corticostriatal neurons in different cortical areas projecting to various parts of the cingulate nucleus.

The organization of the human striatum estimated by intrinsic functional connectivity.

The resulting estimates of striatal organization provide a reference for exploring how the striatum contributes to processing motor, limbic, and heteromodal information through multiple large-scale corticostriatal circuits.

A Direct Projection from Mouse Primary Visual Cortex to Dorsomedial Striatum

It is found that V1 directly innervates a topographically defined longitudinal strip of dorsomedial striatum in mice and this projection forms functional excitatory synapses with direct and indirect pathway striatal projection neurons (SPNs) and engages feed-forward inhibition onto these cells.

Laminar and connectional organization of a multisensory cortex

Observations indicate that this higher level multisensory cortex shows functional and organizational modifications from the well‐known patterns identified for primary sensory cortical regions.

Learning processing in the basal ganglia: A mosaic of broken mirrors

Contribution of the Entopeduncular Nucleus and the Globus Pallidus to the Control of Locomotion and Visually Guided Gait Modifications in the Cat.

A contribution of the pallidum, in concert with cortical structures, to the control of both the planning and the execution of the gait modifications in the cat is supported, including the possibility that cells in the EP with increased activity may sculpt thalamo-cortical activity.

Unique Features and Neuronal Properties in a Multisensory Cortex

To examine the fundamental features of neuronal processing and organization in the multisensory cortical area of the posterior parietal cortex of ferrets, a combination of immunohistological, neuroanatomical and multiple single-channel electrophysiological recording techniques are utilized.

The organization of the human cerebral cortex estimated by intrinsic functional connectivity.

The organization of these large-scale cerebral networks in the human cerebrum was explored using resting-state functional connectivity MRI and their potential evolutionary expansion in humans to support cognition was discussed.

Aberrant Frontostriatal Connectivity in Negative Symptoms of Schizophrenia.

Reduced frontostriatal functional connectivity in SCZ is shown and striatal connectivity with the right medial OFC in negative symptoms is implicate and may provide a potential circuitry-level biomarker to study the neurobiological mechanisms of negative symptoms.

Organization of visual cortical inputs to the striatum and subsequent outputs to the pallido‐nigral complex in the monkey

Whereas temporal, occipital, and parietal visual cortical areas project into the caudate largely according to proximity, certain multimodal cortical areas seem to have a much wider projection.

The results indicate that corticostriatal neurons in the frontal lobe have different laminar distributions, depending on the particular anatomical or functional area in which they are located.

Topographical organization of the cortical afferent connections of the prefrontal cortex in the cat

The topographical distribution of the cortical afferent connections of the prefrontal cortex (PFC) in adult cats was studied by using the retrograde axonal transport of horseradish peroxidase technique to reveal four prefrontal sectors that can be distinguished, each exhibiting a particular pattern of cortex afferents.

Primate cingulostriatal projection: Limbic striatal versus sensorimotor striatal input

The organization of the projections from the cingulate cortex to the striatum in the monkey was studied using the retrograde tracers Lucifer Yellow conjugated to dextran amines and horseradish

Organization of visual corticostriatal projections in the cat, with observations on visual projections to claustrum and amygdala

Electrophysiological mapping criteria were employed to identify visual areas 20a, 20b, 21a, 21b, PMLS, AMLS, ALLS, PLLS, DLS, VLS, and PS in the cat and to guide placement of tracer deposits, but unequivocal retinotopic organization could not be inferred from the available material.
