A systematic classification and accepted nomenclature of neuron types is much needed but is currently lacking. This article describes a possible taxonomical solution for classifying GABAergic interneurons of the cerebral cortex based on a novel, web-based interactive system that allows experts to classify neurons with pre-determined criteria. Using Bayesian analysis and clustering algorithms on the resulting data, we investigated the suitability of several anatomical terms and neuron names for… Expand
Semi-supervised Projected Clustering for Classifying GABAergic Interneurons
TLDR
A semi-supervised projected clustering algorithm based on finite mixture models and the expectation-maximization algorithm, that is useful for classifying neuron types, is proposed, reporting results for known classes and possible new groups of interneurons. Expand
Bayesian Network Classifiers for Categorizing Cortical GABAergic Interneurons
TLDR
Using Bayesian network classifiers, the interneurons are accurately characterize and classify and identify useful predictor variables and open up new possibilities for an objective and pragmatic classification of interneuron subsets. Expand
Multi-dimensional classification of GABAergic interneurons with Bayesian network-modeled label uncertainty
TLDR
The results indicate that the method is adequate for multi-dimensional classification of interneurons with probabilistic labels, and the introduced morphometric parameters are good predictors ofinterneuron type and the four features of axonal morphology and thus may serve as objective counterparts to the subjective, categorical axonal features. Expand
Classifying GABAergic interneurons with semi-supervised projected model-based clustering
TLDR
The applied semi-supervised clustering method can accurately discriminate among CB, HT, LB, and MA interneuron types while discovering potential subtypes, and is therefore useful for neuronal classification. Expand
Classification of neocortical interneurons using affinity propagation
TLDR
It is found that affinity propagation correctly classified most of the neurons in a blind, non-supervised manner, and could be used in future studies to validly classify neurons, as a first step to help reverse engineer neural circuits. Expand
Classification of GABAergic interneurons by leading neuroscientists
TLDR
This study presents the dataset containing the classification choices by the neuroscientists according to interneuron type as well as to five prominent morphological features, which can be used as crisp or soft training labels for learning supervised machine learninginterneuron classifiers. Expand
Objective Morphological Classification of Neocortical Pyramidal Cells
TLDR
The objective classification of PCs can be achieved with methods from algebraic topology, and the dendritic arborization is sufficient for the reliable identification of distinct types of cortical PCs, and helps settle the long-standing debate on whether cell-types are discrete or continuous morphological variations of each other. Expand
Objective Classification of Neocortical Pyramidal Cells
TLDR
It is found that objective classification is possible with methods from algebraic topology, and that the dendritic arbor is sufficient for reliable identification of distinct types of PCs in the rat somatosensory cortex. Expand
Towards a supervised classification of neocortical interneuron morphologies
TLDR
This study trains models using 217 high-quality morphologies of rat somatosensory neocortex interneurons reconstructed by a single laboratory and pre-classified into eight types, characterized with interpretable models or with up to ten morphometrics. Expand
Classification of Neocortical Neurons Using Affinity
TLDR
The use of affinity propagation, a novel exemplar-based method of cluster analysis, is explored to quantitatively classify a diverse set of 337 neocortical interneurons, revealing that each interneuron subtype is characterized by a unique set of morphological and electrophysiological features that allowed for specialized function within the neocorticals circuit.

Petilla terminology: nomenclature of features of GABAergic interneurons of the cerebral cortex
TLDR
A representative group of researchers are convened to agree on a set of terms to describe the anatomical, physiological and molecular features of GABAergic interneurons of the cerebral cortex, and the resulting terminology might provide a stepping stone towards a future classification of these complex and heterogeneous cells.

Classification of NPY-Expressing Neocortical Interneurons
TLDR
This study characterized distinct populations of NPY neurons in acute slices of rat barrel cortex by means of whole-cell patch-clamp recordings, biocytin labeling, and single-cell reverse transcriptase-PCR designed to probe for the expression of well established molecular markers for cortical neurons.

Origins of neocortical interneurons in mice
TLDR
The goal is to lay the groundwork for future studies that use mouse genetics to study cortical interneuron fate determination and function, and to highlight the findings of recent literature on the temporal and spatial origins of distinctinterneuron groups and types. Expand
A Blueprint for the Spatiotemporal Origins of Mouse Hippocampal Interneuron Diversity
TLDR
It is found that hippocampal interneurons are produced in two neurogenic waves between E9–E12 and E12–E16 from MGE and CGE, respectively, and invade the hippocampus by E14, which provides a basic blueprint of the developmental origins of hippocampalinterneuron diversity. Expand
Selective coexpression of multiple chemical markers defines discrete populations of neocortical GABAergic neurons.
TLDR
The results reveal expression specificity of CRF, NPY, SPR, and NOS in morphologically and physiologically distinct interneuron classes, which support the existence of a limited number of functionally distinct subtypes of GABA cells in the neocortex. Expand

An overview of the problem and a solution approach utilizing ontological characterizations are provided and the need for consensus criteria to be adopted by the research community is discussed, and considerations on future developments are discussed. Expand
Properties of bipolar VIPergic interneurons and their excitation by pyramidal neurons in the rat neocortex
TLDR
Paired whole‐cell patch‐clamp recordings indicated that pyramidal neurons provide intracortical glutamatergic inputs onto IS interneurons, and comparison of the amplitude distribution of paired responses suggested that most of these connections consisted of multiple functional release sites. Expand

A new theory of neocortical cytoarchitectonics and nomenclature is proposed to explain the basic structural and functional organization of the mammalian neocortex, the morphology of itsPyramidal cells, and the addition of new pyramidal cell strata that characterize its phylogenetic evolution.

The comprehensive mapping of interneurons (INs) in cortical columns of rat somatosensory cortex, immunolabeled for neuron-specific nuclear protein and glutamate decarboxylase is reported, finding that a column contains ∼2,200 INs (11.5% of ∼19,000 neurons), almost a factor of 2 less than previously estimated.
