The claustrum-medial prefrontal cortex network controls attentional set-shifting
TLDR
It is proposed that the CLA controls the reorganization of mPFC ensembles to enable attentional set-shifting, emphasizing a potential role of the CLA-mPFC network in attentional dysfunctions.
Hypotheses relating to the function of the claustrum
TLDR
It is proposed that the claustrum functions as a detector and integrator of synchrony in the axonal trains in its afferent inputs and may play a strong role in the control of interactive processes in different parts of the brain, and in theControl of voluntary behavior.
Demarcating the anatomical structure of the claustrum: piecing together a new functional puddle
TLDR
It is now clear that the anatomical boundary of the rat claustrum does in fact extend into more frontal regions of the brain than has previously been asserted.
Changing the Cortical Conductor’s Tempo: Neuromodulation of the Claustrum
TLDR
Neuromodulation in the claustrum is reviewed—from anatomical connectivity to behavioral manipulations—to inform future analyses of claustral function.
Control of Functional Connectivity in Cerebral Cortex by Basal Ganglia Mediated Synchronization
TLDR
The basal ganglia mediated synchronization model, introduced here, implicates these oscillations in the combination of cortical association mechanisms with stimulus-response and reinforcement mechanisms in the basal gangs, and facilitates and synchronizes activity in selected areas of cortex.
Claustrum, consciousness, and time perception
The DTI connectivity of the human claustrum
TLDR
It is found that the claustrum has the highest connectivity in the brain by regional volume and is ideally located within the human central nervous system (CNS) connectome to serve as the putative “gate keeper” of neural information for consciousness awareness.
Dynamics of place, boundary and object encoding in rat anterior claustrum
TLDR
It is hypothesized that one of the functions of the claustrum is to provide information about body position, boundaries and landmark information, enabling dynamic control of behavior.

TLDR
The results suggest that orbitofrontal and prelimbic subregions differentially contribute to behavioral flexibility, but they are both critical for the initial inhibition of a previously learned strategy, while the dorsomedial striatum plays a broader role in behavioral flexibility and supports a process that allows the reliable execution of a new strategy once selected.
Rat Claustrum Coordinates But Does Not Integrate Somatosensory and Motor Cortical Information
TLDR
Although the rodent claustrum is probably involved in the interhemispheric coordination of the MI and SI whisker representations, it does not receive inputs from both of these cortical regions, and should not be universally regarded as an integrator of somesthetic and motor information.
Lesions of the prelimbic-infralimbic cortices in rats do not disrupt response selection processes but induce delay-dependent deficits: evidence for a role in working memory?
TLDR
The present results suggest that the PL-IL does not seem to be directly involved in the processes necessary to maintain specific items over a delay period but rather in the planning of forthcoming behavioral responses on the basis of previously acquired information.
Involvement of rodent prefrontal cortex subregions in strategy switching.
TLDR
Inactivation of the prelimbic-infralimbic areas, but not the dorsal anterior cingulate area, impaired learning when rats were switched from one version to the other in the cheeseboard task.
Sensory maps in the claustrum of the cat
TLDR
It is concluded that loops connecting sensory areas of the neocortex with satellite zones in the claustrum contribute to the early processing of exteroceptive information by the forebrain.
Lesions of orbitofrontal cortex and basolateral amygdala complex disrupt acquisition of odor-guided discriminations and reversals.
TLDR
These findings suggest that OFC and ABL serve partially overlapping roles in the use of incentive information that supports normal discrimination performance.
Reward-related Reversal Learning after Surgical Excisions in Orbito-frontal or Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex in Humans
TLDR
The results show that the orbital prefrontal cortex is required bilaterally for monitoring changes in the reward value of stimuli and using this to guide behavior in the task; whereas the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, if it produces deficits in thetask, does so for reasons related to executive functions, such as the control of attention.
