Phenotypic variation of transcriptomic cell types in mouse motor cortex

The results suggest that neuronal types in the neocortex do not always form discrete entities, but can form continuous and correlated transcriptomic and morpho-electrical landscapes within families.

Morphological diversity of single neurons in molecularly defined cell types

This study demonstrates the crucial need for quantitative description of complete single-cell anatomy in cell-type classification, as single- cell morphological diversity reveals a plethora of ways in which different cell types and their individual members may contribute to the configuration and function of their respective circuits.

A transcriptomic axis predicts state modulation of cortical interneurons

It is shown that inhibitory subtypes in primary visual cortex (V1) have diverse correlates with brain state, but that this diversity is organized by a single factor: position along their main axis of transcriptomic variation.

High-throughput morphometric and transcriptomic profiling uncovers composition of naïve and sensory-deprived cortical cholinergic VIP/CHAT neurons.

This work studied the morphological and transcriptional diversity of cortical cholinergic VIP/ChAT interneurons (VChIs), a sparse population with a largely unknown function, and developed NuNeX, a method for isolating nuclei from fixed tissues, to explore sorted VChIs.

Sncg, Mybpc1, and Parm1 Classify subpopulations of VIP-expressing interneurons in layers 2/3 of the somatosensory cortex.

This study utilizing patch-clamp RT-PCR to simultaneously obtain the morpho-electric properties and mRNA profiles of 155 VIP+ interneurons in layers 2 and 3 of the mouse somatosensory cortex established a basis for future investigations aiming to elucidate their physiological roles.

A Drosophila glial cell atlas reveals that transcriptionally defined cell types can be morphologically diverse

The first single-cell transcriptomic atlas of glia in Drosophila is generated and extensive in vivo validation suggests that morphology is not set by an intrinsic transcriptional program, and it is proposed that glia adopt morphological and functional states in response to their local environment.

A taxonomy of transcriptomic cell types across the isocortex and hippocampal formation

This study establishes a molecular architecture of the mammalian isocortex and hippocampal formation for the first time, and begins to shed light on its underlying relationship with the development, evolution, connectivity and function of these two brain structures.

Mapping of morpho-electric features to molecular identity of cortical inhibitory neurons

The composition of the whole cortex of the mouse cortex is estimated in terms of well characterised morphological and electrophysiological inhibitory neuron types (me-types) in order to populate the whole mouse cortex with detailed neuron models.

Phenotypic variation within and across transcriptomic cell types in mouse motor cortex

Patch-seq is used to combine patch-clamp recording, biocytin staining, and single-cell RNA sequencing of over 1300 neurons in adult mouse motor cortex, providing a comprehensive morpho-electric annotation of almost all transcriptomically defined neural cell types, suggesting that neural types in the neocortex do not always form discrete entities.

The diversity of GABAergic neurons and neural communication elements

It is posited that cardinal interneuron types can be defined by their synaptic communication properties, which are encoded in key transcriptional signatures, and a framework in which cell types are transcriptionally defined communication elements with characteristic input–output properties is proposed.

Classification of electrophysiological and morphological neuron types in the mouse visual cortex

A single-cell characterization pipeline is established using standardized patch-clamp recordings in brain slices and biocytin-based neuronal reconstructions to establish a morpho-electrical taxonomy of cell types for the mouse visual cortex via unsupervised clustering analysis of multiple quantitative features.

Neuronal cell-type classification: challenges, opportunities and the path forward

Neurons have diverse molecular, morphological, connectional and functional properties. We believe that the only realistic way to manage this complexity — and thereby pave the way for understanding

Electrophysiological, transcriptomic and morphologic profiling of single neurons using Patch-seq

This work generates electrophysiological and molecular profiles of 58 neocortical cells and shows that gene expression patterns can be used to infer the morphological and physiological properties such as axonal arborization and action potential amplitude of individual neurons.

Transcriptomic homogeneity and an age-dependent onset of hemoglobin expression characterize morphological PV types

These findings reveal novel genes whose expression separately identify morphological types but corroborate an overall transcriptomic homogeneity among PV-INs, and reveal a pronounced change of transcriptomic states between postnatal days 20 and 25, during which PV-Ins display a rapid and unexpected onset of hemoglobin gene expression which remains stable in later development.

Quantitative Classification of Somatostatin-Positive Neocortical Interneurons Identifies Three Interneuron Subtypes

Three groups of cells are revealed: one comprised of Martinotti cells, and two other groups of interneurons with short asymmetric axons targeting layers 2/3 and bending medially, particularly with respect to action potential time course.
