Whole cell patch-clamp recordings were employed to characterize the electrophysiological properties of layer 5 pyramidal cells in slices of the prefrontal cortex (Area 46) of the rhesus monkey. Four electrophysiologically distinct cell types were discriminated based on distinctive repetitive action potential (AP) firing patterns and single AP characteristics: regular-spiking slowly adapting type-1 cells (RS1; 62%), regular-spiking slowly adapting type-2 cells (RS2; 18%), regular-spiking fast… Expand
Electrophysiological classes of layer 2/3 pyramidal cells in monkey prefrontal cortex.
TLDR
Diversity in the functional properties of DLPFC pyramidal cells may contribute to heterogeneous modes of information processing during working memory and other cognitive operations that engage the activity of cortical circuits in the superficial layers of the DLP FC. Expand
Current classifications of pyramidal cells are based on the cells ’ firing patterns as well as the shape of their action potentials (

A simulation study on the effects of dendritic morphology on layer V prefrontal pyramidal cell firing behavior
TLDR
This work uses computational modeling to investigate quantitatively the effects of the basal dendritic tree morphology on the firing behavior of 112 three-dimensional reconstructions of layer V PFC rat pyramidal cells, and suggests total length, volume and branch number are the best morphological parameters to discriminate the cells as RS or IB, regardless of the distribution of ionic mechanisms in basal trees.

Firing-Pattern-Dependent Specificity of Cortical Excitatory Feed-Forward Subnetworks
TLDR
The results suggest that L2/3 pyramidal cells selectively innervate L5 cells, depending on their firing subtypes, and the common input probability was highly selective when cell pairs of the same sub types, but not different subtype pairs, had connections between them. Expand
Functional consequences of age-related morphologic changes in pyramidal neurons of the rhesus monkey prefrontal cortex
Layer 3 (L3) pyramidal neurons in the lateral prefrontal cortex (LPFC) of rhesus monkeys exhibit dendritic regression, spine loss and increased action potential (AP) firing rates during normal aging.Expand
Morphological and physiological characterization of pyramidal neuron subtypes in rat medial prefrontal cortex.
TLDR
The diversity of pyramidal neurons is studied using in vitro whole-cell patch clamp recordings and biocytin staining of neurons, followed by morphological analysis to better understand cortical processing in the rat mPFC. Expand
Distinct Properties of Layer 3 Pyramidal Neurons from Prefrontal and Parietal Areas of the Monkey Neocortex
TLDR
Comparisons of physiology, dendrite morphology and transcriptome of L3PNs from macaque monkey DLPFC versus posterior parietal cortex (PPC) show that the previously observed differences between DLP FC and PPC neuron activity during working memory tasks are associated with diversity in the cellular/molecular properties of L 3PNs. Expand
Distinct properties of layer 3 pyramidal neurons from prefrontal and parietal areas of the monkey neocortex
TLDR
Data show that the previously observed differences between DLPFC and PPC neuron activity during working memory tasks are associated with diversity in the cellular/molecular properties of L3PNs, which reflect, and may contribute to, a greater complexity of computations performed in DLP FC. Expand
Sag currents are a major contributor to human pyramidal cell intrinsic differences across cortical layers and between individuals
Abstract In the human neocortex, coherent theta oscillations between superficial and deep cortical layers are driven by deep layer neurons, suggesting distinct intrinsic electrophysiologicalExpand
Cell Type-Specific Effects of Adenosine on Cortical Neurons
TLDR
It is found that adenosine, via the A1 receptor, exerts differential effects depending on neuronal cell type and laminar location, which may contribute to the understanding of the changes in cortical circuit functioning that take place between sleep and awakening. Expand

Functional properties of fast spiking interneurons and their synaptic connections with pyramidal cells in primate dorsolateral prefrontal cortex.
TLDR
The results suggest that FS neurons and their synaptic connections with pyramidal cells have homogeneous physiological properties, and different functional roles of basket and chandelier neurons in the DLPFC in vivo must arise from the distinct properties of the interneuronal axonal arborization or from a different functional pattern of excitatory and inhibitory connections with other components of the D LPFC neuronal network.
