GDNF/GFRα1 Complex Abrogates Self-Renewing Activity of Cortical Neural Precursors Inducing Their Differentiation
(Cell Press, 2018-03)
The balance between factors leading to proliferation and differentiation of cortical neural precursors (CNPs) determines the correct cortical development. In this work, we show that GDNF and its receptor GFRα1 are expressed ...
Whispering neurons fuel cortical highways
(American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2018-04)
Synaptic communication accelerates neuronal migration in the developing brain. The mammalian neocortex is one of the most intricate entities found in nature, both in terms of structure and function. It is the brain region ...
Microenvironments to study migration and somal translocation in cortical neurons
Migrating post-mitotic neurons of the developing cerebral cortex undergo terminal somal translocation (ST) when they reach their final destination in the cortical plate. This process is crucial for proper cortical layering ...
A neuronal device for the control of multi-step computations
(Instituto de Física de Líquidos y Sistemas Biológicos, 2013-07-09)
We describe the operation of a neuronal device which embodies the computational principles of the `paper-and-pencil' machine envisioned by Alan Turing. The network is based on principles of cortical organization. We develop ...
Antioxidant responses of cortex neurons to iron loading
(Sociedad de Biología de Chile, 2006)
Interplay of environmental signals and progenitor diversity on fate specification of cortical GABAergic neurons
Cortical GABAergic interneurons constitute an extremely diverse population of cells organized in a well-defined topology of precisely interconnected cells. They play a crucial role regulating inhibitory-excitatory balance ...
