Determining the connections of neural systems is critical for determining how they function. In this review, we focus on the use of HSV-1 and HSV-2 as transneuronal tracers. Using HSV to examine neural circuits is technically simple. HSV is injected into the area of interest, and after several days, the animals are perfused and processed for immunohistochemistry with antibodies to HSV proteins. Variables which influence HSV infection include species of host, age of host, titre of virus, strain… Expand
Viral Tracers for the Analysis of Neural Circuits
TLDR
This chapter discusses how the pseudorabies virus (PRV) strain Bartha, an attenuated form of a pig alphaherpesvirus, is an excellent retrograde transneuronal tracer for labeling neural networks in central nervous system networks involving chains of two or more functionally connected neurons. Expand
Restrictions that control herpes simplex virus type 1 infection in mouse brain ex vivo.
TLDR
It is concluded that tissue resistance to infection is associated with a block at or prior to the immediate-early mRNA synthesis, which indicates that HSV-1 genes are not expressed in regions that do not express a viral reporter gene. Expand
Gene transfer into neurones for the molecular analysis of behaviour: focus on herpes simplex vectors
TLDR
HSV-1 vectors can be engineered for gene transfer to the brain, which makes them suitable for neuroscience research applications and genetic manipulations of the virus can almost eliminate toxicity and allow expression of multiple transgenes simultaneously. Expand
The anterior commissure is a pathway for contralateral spread of herpes simplex virus type 1 after olfactory tract infection
TLDR
It is concluded that the olfactory route and the AC are important for the spread of HSV-1 within the Olfactory/limbic system of rats and furthermore, it is suggested that AQP9 is involved in viral tropism and pathogenesis of HSE. Expand
Transneuronal retrograde transport of attenuated pseudorabies viruses within central visual pathways
TLDR
The PRV strains used produce a local infection that progresses primarily in the retrograde direction in the central visual pathways, providing a means of examining detailed circuitry within the visual pathway. Expand
Herpes simplex type 1 infects and establishes latency in the brain and trigeminal ganglia during primary infection of the lip in cotton rats and mice
TLDR
Using PCR and RT-PCR techniques, HSV-1 thymidine kinase is demonstrated in the absence of infectivity in the brains of both species 30–40 days after primary infection. Expand
Dual Transneuronal Tracing in the Rat Entorhinal-Hippocampal Circuit by Intracerebral Injection of Recombinant Rabies Virus Vectors
TLDR
It is established that single neurons in CA3 are connected to the entorhinal cortex bilaterally with only one synaptic relay, and dual transneuronal tracing potentially provides a powerful and sensitive method to study issues such as the amount of convergence and divergence within and between circuits in the central nervous system. Expand
A Cre-Dependent, Anterograde Transsynaptic Viral Tracer for Mapping Output Pathways of Genetically Marked Neurons
TLDR
Application of this Cre recombinase-dependent, anterograde transneuronal tracer virus to transgenic or knockin mice expressing Cre in peripheral neurons of the olfactory epithelium or the retina reveals widespread, polysynaptic labeling of higher-order neurons in the Olfactory and visual systems, respectively. Expand
Use of Adeno‐Associated and Herpes Simplex Viral Vectors for In Vivo Neuronal Expression in Mice
TLDR
Methods for storing, delivering, and verifying expression of adeno‐associated and herpes simplex viruses in the adult mouse brain and important considerations for experiments using in vivo expression of these viral vectors, including serotype and promoter selection, are described. Expand
Transsynaptic tracing by in situ complementation of a deletion mutant neurotropic virus
TLDR
Two new tools for tracing neural connections are developed that should allow a significantly more precise understanding of the organization of nervous systems than has previously been possible. Expand

The roles of herpes simplex virus in neuroscience.
TLDR
The goal of this paper is to review the different roles for HSV in the broad field of neuroscience and the construction and development of HSV-based vectors for gene therapy and the use ofHSV as a neuronal tracer. Expand
Anterograde, transneuronal transport of herpes simplex virus type 1 strain H129 in the murine visual system
TLDR
Results demonstrate the specific anterograde movement of this virus from the retina to subcortical and cortical regions, with no clear evidence for retrograde spread of HSV-1 strain H129. Expand
Direction of transneuronal transport of herpes simplex virus 1 in the primate motor system is strain-dependent.
TLDR
The observations suggest that strain differences have an important impact on the direction of transneuronal transport of HSV-1 and virus strain differences, and it should be possible to examine the organization of cerebellar and basal ganglia loops with cerebral cortex by exploiting transneurononal transport. Expand
Neurobiology of human herpesvirus infections.
TLDR
This review examines current understanding of HSV-1 infections of both the peripheral and CNS from a neurobiological perspective and concludes that herpes encephalitis represents an aberrant interaction of the virus and host that is at present poorly understood. Expand
Retrograde transneuronal transfer of Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV 1) from motoneurones
TLDR
This local transfer of virus from XII axons via glial cells does not lead to extensive spread of the infection, yet, when using HSV for retrograde transneuronal tracing it may represent a source of error. Expand
Herpes simplex virus infection of motor neurons: hypoglossal model
TLDR
Findings indicate that HSV can penetrate the neuromuscular junction, travel in a pure motor nerve, and produce a focal encephalitis in the corresponding central nervous system motor nucleus. Expand

TLDR
It is postulate that hindlimb paralysis may have resulted from intense involvement of the posterior column (gracile fasciculus) in the thoracolumbar spinal cord, a region known to contain the corticospinal tract in rodents. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that HSV may be useful as an anterograde transneuronal tracer for neuroanatomical studies of the visual system and is more efficiently adsorbed than HSV-1 in the retinal ganglion cells. Expand
