Interneuronal communication in the central nervous system (CNS) have always been of basic importance for theories on the cerebral morphofunctional architecture. Our group has proposed that intercellular communication in the brain can be grouped into 2 broad classes based on some general features of the transmission: wiring (WT) and volume (VT) transmission. WT occurs via a relatively constrained cellular chain (wire), while VT consists of 3-dimensional diffusion of signals in the extracellular… Expand
Volume transmission in the CNS and its relevance for neuropsychopharmacology.
TLDR
These drugs can be regarded as exogenous VT signals in that they diffuse in the cerebral extracellular space and are constrained there by the same factors that influence migration of endogenous VT signals. Expand

TLDR
Under physiological conditions, lipid mediators, such as arachidonic acid, anadamide, and oleamide may well diffuse long distances, as certainly do the neurosteroids, adrenal steroids, and gonadal steroids, however, such distant actions for these mediators are still circumscribed to selected responsive neurons by the restricted expression of their receptors. Expand
Glutamate in dopamine neurons: Synaptic versus diffuse transmission
TLDR
A current study suggests that the co-expression of tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) and VGluT2 by these neurons is regulated during embryonic development, and may be derepressed or reactivated postnatally following their partial destruction by neonatal administration of 6-hydroxydopamine. Expand
Transmitter-Receptor Mismatches in Central Dopamine, Serotonin, and Neuropeptide Systems
TLDR
This chapter focuses on recent immunofluorescence, confocal laser, and immunoelectron microscopic (IEM) observations, which illustrate the diversity of topological relationships between dopamine (DA)-, serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine [5-HT])-, and neuropeptide (NP)-containing neurons and their receptors in various regions of the brain. Expand
Comparative aspects of volume transmission, with sidelight on other forms of intercellular communication.
TLDR
It is concluded that volume transmission is most probably very common in the greater limbic system of mammals, and that this mode of inter neuronal communications also occurs in the neostriatum, the hippocampus, and the neocortex of this group. Expand
The fine structure of the dopaminergic innervation of area 10 of macaque prefrontal cortex
TLDR
This quantitative ultrastructural study presents basic features of the dopaminergic innervation in prefrontal area 10 and provides a more detailed understanding of the structural basis of dopamine signalling in the cortex. Expand
Prefrontal Cortical Dopamine Transmission: Ultrastructural Studies and Their Functional Implications
TLDR
This chapter reviews the anatomical features of the mesoprefrontal DA pathway with an emphasis on what has been discovered from ultrastructural investigations, and how anatomical studies inform understanding of DA physiology and actions of this modulator on neuronal plasticity. Expand
The role of non-synaptic extracellular glutamate
TLDR
Evidence accumulated over the last years shows a number of mechanisms capable of releasing glial GLU to the extracellular medium, thus modulating neurons, microglia and oligodendrocytes, and regulating the immune response, cerebral blood flow, neuronal synchronization and other brain functions. Expand
Geometry and kinetics of dopaminergic transmission in the rat striatum and in mice lacking the dopamine transporter.
TLDR
The comparison between normal and DAT -/- mice underlines the functional importance of the temporal characteristics of dopaminergic transmission in the striatum and the major role of the dopamine transporter in the control of these temporal characteristics. Expand
Extrasynaptic distribution of monoamine transporters and receptors.
TLDR
The ultrastructural evidence for extrasynaptic monoaminergic transmission supports for the idea that the central neurons can release monoamines in a paracrine manner to affect diverse targets. Expand

Wiring and volume transmission in the central nervous system: The concept of closed and open synapses
TLDR
Six main modes of intercellular communication can be recognized in the CNS: gap-junction, membrane juxtaposition, and closed synapse (which represent WT-type modes of communication); open synapse, paracrine transmission and endocrine-like transmission ( which represent VT-type Modes of communication). Expand
Aspects of neural plasticity in the central nervous system—VII. Theoretical aspects of brain communication and computation
TLDR
It is hypothesized that membrane domains, made by patches of membrane in which preselected molecular movements are possible resulting in molecular interactions, can have an important role in the integrative capabilities of neural tissue. Expand
Intercellular communication in the brain: Wiring versus volume transmission
TLDR
The basic definitions and some distinctive characteristics of the two types of transmission are discussed and the evidence for different types of intercellular communication besides synaptic transmission in the central nervous system during phylogeny, and in vertebrates in physiological and pathological conditions is reviewed. Expand
The NO hypothesis: possible effects of a short-lived, rapidly diffusible signal in the development and function of the nervous system.
TLDR
The hypothesis that the release of nitric oxide and its subsequent diffusion may be critically related to three aspects of nervous system function: synaptic plasticity and long-term potentiation in certain regions of the adult nervous system, the control of cerebral blood flow in such regions, and the establishment and activity-dependent refinement of axonal projections during the later stages of development is explored. Expand
Intersynaptic diffusion of neurotransmitter.
TLDR
A simple model is used which predicts that, during concentrated synaptic activity, crosstalk between distinct synapses is likely to activate high-affinity receptors and may also desensitize certain receptors. Expand
Ultrastructural basis of monoamine and acetylcholine function in CNS
TLDR
It is hypothesized that in brain regions densely innervated by varicosities that are mostly non-junctional (e.g. acetylcholine and dopamine in neostriatum), a basal level of transmitter is permanently maintained around all cellular elements, contributing to the modulatory properties of the corresponding systems.

The Migration of Substances in the Neuronal Microenvironment a
TLDR
The brain differs radically in this respect; here information flows have achieved extraordinary prominence, and the energetic flows have become subservient to the task of providing energy for the processing of information and for maintaining the environment in a state where communication can take place. Expand
Nonsynaptic modulation of neuronal activity in the brain: electric currents and extracellular ions.
TLDR
Field effects and ion fluctuations probably have modest effects during physiological activity but have a significant impact on epileptic seizures, and can sustain them in the absence of synaptic transmission. Expand

Changes in extracellular space (ECS) composition and geometry are a consequence of neuronal activity and of glial K+, pH, and amino acids homeostasis. They accompany the phenomena of repetitiveExpand
Synapse specificity of long-term potentiation breaks down at short distances
TLDR
A new local superfusion technique is used to assess the synaptic specificity of LTP with a spatial resolution of ∼30μm, and results indicate that there is no input specificity at a distance of less than 70μm. Expand
