Impairments in certain cognitive functions, such as working memory, are core features of schizophrenia. Convergent findings indicate that a deficiency in signalling through the TrkB neurotrophin receptor leads to reduced GABA (γ-aminobutyric acid) synthesis in the parvalbumin-containing subpopulation of inhibitory GABA neurons in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex of individuals with schizophrenia. Despite both pre- and postsynaptic compensatory responses, the resulting alteration in… Expand

Cognitive Dysfunction in Schizophrenia
Impairments in certain cognitive functions mediated by the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, such as working memory, are core features of schizophrenia. Convergent findings suggest that theseExpand
Cortical parvalbumin interneurons and cognitive dysfunction in schizophrenia
TLDR
A new model of cortical dysfunction in schizophrenia is suggested in which PVBC inhibition is decreased to compensate for an upstream deficit in pyramidal cell excitation, but at a level insufficient to generate the gamma oscillation power required for high levels of cognitive control. Expand
Prefrontal cortical circuits in schizophrenia.
TLDR
Cannabis use provides an example of an environmental exposure that may have a deleterious impact on these neurotransmitter systems and thereby contribute to worsening of cognitive functioning in schizophrenia. Expand
Perisomatic inhibition and cortical circuit dysfunction in schizophrenia
TLDR
In the prefrontal cortex of subjects with schizophrenia, alterations are present in both pre- and post-synaptic markers of the strength of GABA inputs from parvalbumin basket neurons to pyramidal neurons, which may contribute to the neural substrate for impaired gamma oscillations in schizophrenia. Expand

TLDR
Findings suggest specific targets for therapeutic interventions to improve cognitive function in individuals with schizophrenia through impaired signaling via the N-methyl-d-aspartate class of glutamate receptors. Expand

TLDR
The findings suggest that prefrontal cortical dysfunction in schizophrenia results from an “upstream” deficit in pyramidal cell excitation and that inhibition from PV basket cells is downregulated to compensate for this low network activity. Expand
Deciphering the disease process of schizophrenia: the contribution of cortical GABA neurons.
TLDR
Evidence indicates that disturbances in neurotransmission by a subset of GABA neurons in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex are commonly present in schizophrenia, and several pathogenetic mechanisms that could rise to the alterations in GABA neurotransmission are discussed. Expand
Neuroplasticity of Neocortical Circuits in Schizophrenia
TLDR
This review considers disturbances in excitatory, inhibitory, and modulatory connections of DLPFC circuitry from the perspective of disease- and development-related neuroplasticity and discusses their implications for the identification of novel therapeutic targets. Expand

Selective alterations in prefrontal cortical GABA neurotransmission in schizophrenia: a novel target for the treatment of working memory dysfunction
TLDR
The nature of the altered GABA neurotransmission in the DLPFC in schizophrenia is reviewed to consider how these findings might inform the search for new treatments for cognitive dysfunction in this illness. Expand
Reciprocal alterations in pre- and postsynaptic inhibitory markers at chandelier cell inputs to pyramidal neurons in schizophrenia.
TLDR
Data suggest that GABA(A) receptors are up-regulated at pyramidal neuron AIS in response to deficient GABA neuro-transmission at chandelier axon terminals in schizophrenia, which may be a critical component of prefrontal cortical dysfunction in schizophrenia. Expand
Genes, dopamine and cortical signal-to-noise ratio in schizophrenia
TLDR
In schizophrenia, an abnormal cortical dopamine D1/D2 activation ratio - in concert with, and in part related to, altered GABA and glutamate transmission - appears to interfere crucially with this process. Expand
Schizophrenia and the parvalbumin-containing class of cortical local circuit neurons.
TLDR
The findings suggest that altered GABA neurotransmission in schizophrenia is due to either abnormalities in other sub-populations of prefrontal cortical GABA neurons or abnormalities in the parvalbumin-containing subclass that could not be detected in the present study. Expand

Evidence indicating that a subpopulation of pyramidal neurons in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex exhibits reductions in dendritic spine density, a marker of the number of excitatory inputs, and in somal volume, a measure correlated with a neuron's d endritic and axonal architecture is reviewed.

GABAergic Interneurons: Implications for Understanding Schizophrenia and Bipolar Disorder
TLDR
Investigation of the GABA system in rodent, primate and human brain and the characterization of changes in specific phenotypic subclasses of interneurons in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder will undoubtedly provide important new insights into how the integration of this transmitter system may be altered in neuropsychiatric disease.

Findings support the hypothesis that schizophrenia is associated with impaired neural circuitry demonstrated as a failure of gamma band synchronization, especially in the 40 Hz range. Expand

TLDR
Findings suggest that deficits of specific GABAergic neurons, defined by the presence of calcium-binding proteins, are present in schizophrenia, and trends toward similar reductions are observed in bipolar disorder. Expand
