Neuroscience produces a vast amount of data from an enormous diversity of neurons. A neuronal classification system is essential to organize such data and the knowledge that is derived from them. Classification depends on the unequivocal identification of the features that distinguish one type of neuron from another. The problems inherent in this are particularly acute when studying cortical interneurons. To tackle this, we convened a representative group of researchers to agree on a set of… Expand
New insights into the classification and nomenclature of cortical GABAergic interneurons
TLDR
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 is described. Expand
Classification and function of GABAergic interneurons of the mammalian cerebral cortex
  • A. V. Zaitsev
  • Biology
  • Biochemistry (Moscow) Supplement Series A: Membrane and Cell Biology
  • 2013
TLDR
Current approaches to classification of interneurons are examined and the properties and the functional role of basket cells, chandelier cells, neurogliaform interneURons, Martinotti cells, and some other classes of interneeurons based on morphological, immunohistochemical, electrophysiological and optogenetic studies are reviewed. Expand
Beyond the frontiers of neuronal types
TLDR
This work introduces a novel paradigm for neuronal type classification, assuming explicitly the existence of a structured continuum of diversity, and identifies a small optimal number of model archetypes and each considered neuron. Expand
Neuronal cell types in the neocortex
One of the major challenges in neuroscience is to provide an answer to the question: Is it possible to define a set of neuronal cell types that is sufficient to describe the organizational principlesExpand
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
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. Expand
Many Specialists for Suppressing Cortical Excitation
TLDR
It is clear that interneurons are organized with physiological attributes representing the most general, molecular characteristics the most detailed and morphological features occupying the middle ground, but none of these features are sufficient to define classes of interneuron types. 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
Quantitative Classification of Somatostatin-Positive Neocortical Interneurons Identifies Three Interneuron Subtypes
TLDR
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. 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

TLDR
Tentative models for the cortical neuron chains can be proposed using recent information on the mode of termination of various afferent pathways of the cortex and on the cellular origin of the main efferent pathways, as well as the combined application of four techniques. Expand
Interneuron Diversity series: Hippocampal interneuron classifications – making things as simple as possible, not simpler
TLDR
The nervous system is made up of many specific types of neuron intricately intertwined to form complex networks, and several approaches are now available to overcome the challenges and problems associated with the various classification systems used so far. Expand

TLDR
The discovery of neuronal types is best achieved by imitating the naturalist who seeks new biological species: a large sample of cells is gathered by a regular, widely effective method, and an effort is made to understand the biases in the sampling procedure. Expand

TLDR
Microarray analysis of 12 populations of neurons in the adult mouse forebrain resulted in a taxonomic tree that reflected the expected major relationships between these populations, such as the distinction between cortical interneurons and projection neurons. Expand

In many areas of the vertebrate brain, such as the cerebral and cerebellar cortices, neural circuits rely on inhibition mediated by GABA (γ-aminobutyric acid) to shape the spatiotemporal patterns ofExpand

Electrophysiology of a dendritic neuron model.
  • W. Rall
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Biophysical journal
  • 1962
TLDR
The development of a mathematical model of dendritic neurons was begun because of a need to combine three different kinds of knowledge into a coherent theory, namely, the anatomical concept of the neuron, the theoretical development of the nerve membrane models, and a detailed body of quantitative electrophysiological information obtained from individual neurons by means of intracellular and extracellular microelectrodes.

TLDR
In this review, first the precise location of postsynaptic GABA and glutamate receptors is examined at cortical synapses, in order to define the site of synaptic interactions, and the following organisational principles are examined. Expand
