The cortical and subcortical forebrain connections of the marmoset prefrontal cortex (PFC) were examined by injecting the retrograde tracer, choleratoxin, and the anterograde tracer, biotin dextran amine, into four sites within the PFC. Two of the sites, the lateral and orbital regions, had previously been shown to provide functionally dissociable contributions to distinct forms of behavioral flexibility, attentional set‐shifting and discrimination reversal learning, respectively.

Subcortical projections to the frontal pole in the marmoset monkey
TLDR
The frontal pole is revealed as a region that integrates information from multiple neural processing systems, including high‐level sensory, limbic and working memory‐related structures, and functional distinctions between medial and lateral sectors of area 10 are suggested.
Afferent connections of cytoarchitectural area 6M and surrounding cortex in the marmoset: putative homologues of the supplementary and pre-supplementary motor areas
TLDR
The results show that the cortical motor control circuit is conserved in simian primates, indicating that marmosets can be valuable models for studying movement planning and control.
Afferent Connections of Cytoarchitectural Area 6M and Surrounding Cortex in the Marmoset: Putative Homologues of the Supplementary and Pre-supplementary Motor Areas.
TLDR
The results show that the cortical motor control circuit is conserved in simian primates, indicating that marmosets can be valuable models for studying movement planning and control.
Architectural subdivisions of medial and orbital frontal cortices in the marmoset monkey (Callithrix jacchus)
Although the common marmoset has become a model for the study of several neurological conditions that affect the frontal lobe, knowledge of the boundaries of the areas located in the orbital and
Connectional architecture of the prefrontal cortex in the marmoset brain
TLDR
High-resolution connectomic mapping of the marmoset PFC was performed and found two contrasting projection patterns in both the corticocortical and corticostriatal projections, underscoring the importance of the primate model in investigating the principles of PFC connectivity that are shared among primates including humans.
Lesions of either anterior orbitofrontal cortex or ventrolateral prefrontal cortex in marmoset monkeys heighten innate fear and attenuate active coping behaviors to predator threat
TLDR
The finding that dysregulation in two distinct prefrontal regions produces the apparently similar behavioral phenotype of heightened negative emotion provides insight into the varied etiology that may underlie this symptom across a wide variety of neuropsychiatric conditions with implications for personalized treatment strategies.
Patterns of cortical input to the primary motor area in the marmoset monkey
TLDR
The results demonstrate that M1 is unified by a consistent pattern of major connections, but also shows regional variations in terms of minor inputs, which likely reflect requirements for control of voluntary movement involving different body parts.
Contrasting patterns of cortical input to architectural subdivisions of the area 8 complex: a retrograde tracing study in marmoset monkeys.
TLDR
The results are compatible with a homologous organization of the prefrontal cortex in New and Old World monkeys, and suggest significant parallels between the present pathways, revealed by tract-tracing, and networks revealed by functional connectivity analysis in Old World monkey and humans.
Cyto- and Myelo-Architecture of the Amygdaloid Complex of the Common Marmoset Monkey (Callithrix jacchus)
TLDR
This study provides a detailed atlas of marmoset AC and reveals that, despite phylogenetic distance and brain size differences, every nucleus and myelinated axon bundle described in human and macaque studies can be confidently recognized in marmosets.

Thalamic connections of the auditory cortex in marmoset monkeys: Core and medial belt regions
TLDR
The results indicate that parallel subcortical pathways target the core and medial belt regions and that RM and CM represent functionally distinct areas within the medial belt auditory cortex.
The orbital and medial prefrontal circuit through the primate basal ganglia
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the orbital prefrontal cortex projects primarily to the medial edge of the ventral striatum and to the core of the nucleus accumbens, and the arrangement of terminals in the globus pallidus and substantia nigra show two different patterns.
Cytoarchitectonic subdivisions of the dorsolateral frontal cortex of the marmoset monkey (Callithrix jacchus), and their projections to dorsal visual areas
TLDR
The results illuminate aspects of the evolutionary development of the primate frontal cortex, and serve as a basis for further research into cognitive functions using a marmoset model.
Prefrontostriatal connections in relation to cortical architectonic organization in rhesus monkeys
TLDR
Investigation of prefrontostriatal connections in rhesus monkeys using the autoradiographic technique shows that the main connections from the prefrontal cortex to the striatum are to the head and body of the caudate nucleus, which seems to reflect the architectonic organization of the cortex.
Differential connections of the perirhinal and parahippocampal cortex with the orbital and medial prefrontal networks in macaque monkeys
TLDR
This study examined the connections of the orbital and medial prefrontal networks with the perirhinal and parahippocampal cortex with anterograde and retrograde axonal tracers in monkeys.
Distribution and some projections of cholinergic neurons in the brain of the common marmoset, Callithrix jacchus
TLDR
The combination of the retrograde transport of HRP‐WGA with ChAT immunohistochemistry revealed the distribution of neurons in the Ch4 cell group projecting to the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, which suggests some degree of topographical organization of Ch4 projections to the cortical mantle.
Longitudinal topography and interdigitation of corticostriatal projections in the rhesus monkey
TLDR
The present findings suggest a new conceptualization of corticostriatal topography in the primate which emphasizes the longitudinal arrangement of cortical terminal domains, and provide a map for functional parcellation of the neostriatum on the basis of its cortical innervation.
Specificity in the efferent projections of the nucleus accumbens in the rat: Comparison of the rostral pole projection patterns with those of the core and shell
TLDR
The efferent connections of the rostral pole of the rat accumbens were examined with the aid of the anterogradely transported plant lectin, Phaseolus vulgaris‐leucoagglutinin (PHA‐L), for comparison with the previously reported projection patterns of the accumbal core and shell, provoking the speculation that ventral striatal calbindin immunoreactive cells contribute principally to basal ganglia‐like projections.
