The human olfactory system in two proteinopathies: Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases
TLDR
Connectomic approaches reveal a number of hubs in the olfactory system that are key interconnectors with the main hubs of network dysfunction in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, and why some neuronal populations are vulnerable while others are resistant to pathology and to what extent glia prevent and/or facilitate proteinopathy spreading.
Slowly-Conducting Pyramidal Tract Neurons in Macaque and Rat
TLDR
The results suggest that recording bias is the main reason why previous studies were dominated by fast PTNs, and that RI prevented antidromic invasion of slow PTNs.
Slowly-conducting pyramidal tract neurons in macaque and rat
TLDR
The results suggest that recording bias is the main reason why previous studies were dominated by fast PTNs and that recurrent inhibition prevented antidromic invasion of slow PTNs.
Motor cortex stimulation and neuropathic pain: how does motor cortex stimulation affect pain-signaling pathways?
TLDR
It is demonstrated that MCS effectively attenuated neuropathic pain and modulated ascending and descending pain pathways.

Skilled Behaviour and Bilateral Motor Map Expression
Multiple seizures cause changes to both cortical movement representations (motor maps) and behavioural impairment. The contribution of seizures to motor map alterations and impaired skilled forelimb
Axon diameters and conduction velocities in the macaque pyramidal tract
TLDR
The distribution of antidromic and orthodromic latencies of corticospinal neurons was strongly biased toward those with large, fast-conducting axons, and those smaller than 3 μm were grossly underrepresented in the electrophysiological recordings.

TLDR
Comparative animal studies of the distributed descending system through which the brain controls movement continue to provide deeper understanding and insight into the deficits resulting from human corticospinal lesions, whether caused by stroke, tumor, multiple sclerosis, trauma or ALS.
Fibre pathways of the brain
This large, well illustrated volume deals with one aspect of the fibre systems of the brain. The book reports the results of tracing efferent fibre connections from various areas of the cerebral
The importance of being agranular: a comparative account of visual and motor cortex

TLDR
The argument is constructed in honour of Korbinian Brodmann's centenary, and follows two of the fundamental principles of his school of thought: that uniformities in cortical structure, and development imply global conservation of some aspects of function, whereas regional variations in architecture can be used to chart the ‘organs’ of the cortex, and perhaps to understand their functional differences.

THE HUMAN PYRAMIDAL TRACT: II. A NUMERICAL INVESTIGATION OF THE BETZ CELLS OF THE MOTOR AREA
With few exceptions, elementary and clinical textbooks of human neurology describe the pyramidal tract fibers as arising solely from the Betz, or gigantopyramidalis, cells of the motor area (area 4).
THE HUMAN PYRAMIDAL TRACT: A FIBER AND NUMERICAL ANALYSIS
Because of the lack of agreement existing in respect to the origin of the pyramidal tract, it was thought that the application of a refined silver stain to the lower part of the human pyramid might
