Neuroanatomical analysis, such as classification of cell types, depends on reliable reconstruction of large numbers of complete 3D dendrite and axon morphologies. At present, the majority of neuron reconstructions are obtained from preparations in a single tissue slice...

The functional columnar organization of sensory cortices is widely thought to be underpinned by a network of structurally uniform columns of neurons. However, Oberlaender and colleagues now challenge this view by showing that the number of neurons can differ markedly...

The cellular organization of the cortex is of fundamental importance for elucidating the structural principles that underlie its functions. It has been suggested that reconstructing the structure and synaptic wiring of the elementary functional building block of...

One important aspect of reconstructing average neural networks is to validate the estimated synaptic innervations. Unfortunately, direct measurements of synaptic connectivity are mostly performed using paired-recordings in vitro.

Soma location, dendrite morphology, and synaptic innervation are key determinants of neuronal function. Unfortunately, conventional functional measurements of sensory-evoked activity in vivo yield limited structural information. In particular, when trying to infer...

Topic: Simulation of sensory-evoked signal flow in anatomically realistic models of neural networks

» weiterlesen

Dr. Narayanan and the Computational Neuroanatomy Group have been working collaboratively for the past years, aiming to elucidate one of the most fundamental questions in neuroscience research: How do cell type-specific structural properties relate to functional...

The three-dimensional (3D) structure of neural circuits is commonly studied by reconstructing individual or small groups of neurons in separate preparations.

Using a conceptually new approach and state-of-the-art research tools, Dr. Oberlaender and his collaborators have created the first realistic three-dimensional diagram of a thalamocortical column in the rodent brain, illustrated on the cover of the November issue of...

Despite a long-held scientific belief that much of the wiring of the brain is fixed by the time of adolescence, a new study, published in the May 24, 2012 issue of Neuron shows that changes in sensory experience can cause massive rewiring of the brain, even as one...
