During the outgoing phase, we will use 2-photon calcium imaging together with fluorescent labeled interneurons and optogenetics technologies to dissect out, in the mouse V1, the specific role of two interneurons subtypes (parvalbumin- (PV+) and calretinin-expressing (CR+)) in the orientation tuning and the emergence of simple-like receptive fields in pyramidal cells.
To determine what other interneurons were at play in the flexor-extensor circuit, the team looked for other cells in the spinal cord with properties that were similar to those of the V1 neurons.
When transplanted into a strain of mice that does not reject human tissue, the human MGE-like cells survived within the rodent forebrain, integrated into the brain by forming connections with rodent nerve cells, and matured into specialized subtypes of interneurons.
Interneuron Pharmaceuticals is a diversified biopharmaceutical company engaged in the development and commercialization of a portfolio of products and product candidates primarily for neurological and behavioral disorders.
In contrast, Bacci and his colleagues found that interneurons can drug themselves when they get repetitively excited, triggering a self-inhibition process.
Because gamma oscillations emerge from the activity of FS interneurons, and because postmortem studies of the brains of individuals with schizophrenia have shown biochemical abnormalities in FS interneurons, many researchers have concluded these neurons must play some role in the cognitive symptoms of the disorder.
1A]AR-induced proliferation of interneurons to the possible antiepileptic, neuroprotective and neurogenic actions of NE.
The complaint charges Interneuron and Cooper with violating the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 by issuing false and misleading statements concerning Interneuron's only commercially salable drug, Redux (dexfenfluramine).
Gammans was Senior Vice President, Clinical Research at Interneuron Pharmaceuticals (now Indevus Pharmaceuticals) from 1994 until 2000.
By incorporating realistic BC models into dentate gyrus network models, we will be able to test the contribution of this important type of GABAergic interneuron to complex functions of the dentate gyrus, such as pattern separation, temporal deconvolution, and conversion from grid to place codes.
Unlike other neural stem cells that can form many cell types - and that may potentially be less controllable as a consequence - most MGE cells are restricted to producing a type of cell called an interneuron.
