    1. Nuclear factor one B regulates neural stem cell differentiation and axonal projection of corticofugal neurons (pages 6–35)

      The authors show that nuclear factor 1B is expressed in neural progenitors and corticofugal neurons throughout development. Analysis of NfiB−/− mice demonstrates that it is required for generation of outer radial glia and basal progenitors during late corticogenesis; it also regulates axonal projection and migration of cortical neurons.

    2. Topographically organized projection to posterior insular cortex from the posterior portion of the ventral medial nucleus in the long-tailed macaque monkey (pages 36–63)

      Article first published online: 26 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cne.23425

      Anterograde labeling from selectively nociceptive units in VMpo of macaque thalamus demonstrated somatotopic terminations in a distinct insular cortical area centered in the fundus of the superior limiting sulcus. This area has been labeled S2 in atlases, but these findings identify it as the posterior half of interoceptive cortex.

    3. Modular architectonic organization of the insula in the macaque monkey (pages 64–97)

      Henry C. Evrard, Nikos K. Logothetis and A.D. (Bud) Craig

      Article first published online: 26 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cne.23436

      The authors show that the classical granular, dysgranular, and agranular sectors of the macaque insula contain 4, 4, and 7 cyto- and myelo-architectonic areas, respectively. These sharply defined and highly consistent areas provide a novel anatomical framework for the examination of the connectional and functional modularity of the primate insula

    4. Visual pigments and opsin expression in the juveniles of three species of fish (rainbow trout, zebrafish, and killifish) following prolonged exposure to thyroid hormone or retinoic acid (pages 98–117)

      Tarek Suliman and Iñigo Novales Flamarique

      Article first published online: 26 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cne.23391

      By using a combination of optical and histochemical techniques, the authors show that thyroid hormone induces changes in opsin expression and/or visual pigment absorbance in the cone photoreceptors of three species of fish, but retinoic acid has no such effects. Thyroid hormone modulates opsin expression only in the juveniles of fish with metamorphic development.

      Effects of hypoxia-induced gill remodelling on the innervation and distribution of ionocytes in the gill of goldfish, Carassius auratus (pages 118–130)

      Velislava Tzaneva, Claudia Vadeboncoeur, Jaimee Ting and Steve F. Perry

      Article first published online: 26 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cne.23392

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Goldfish acclimated to 7°C possessed greater numbers of ionocytes (IC), but a lower percentage of the ICs were innervated relative to their 25°C conspecifics. Hypoxia-induced gill remodelling did not affect the total (old plus new) number of ICs or their innervation; however, the percentage of innervated ionocytes decreased during normoxic recovery.

    6. Development of the cerebellar afferent system in the shark Scyliorhinus canicula: Insights into the basal organization of precerebellar nuclei in gnathostomes (pages 131–168)

      Sol Pose-Méndez, Eva Candal, Fátima Adrio and Isabel Rodríguez-Moldes

      Article first published online: 26 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cne.23393

      The developmental pattern and neurochemical signature of cerebellar afferents, such as the inferior olive, in the shark Scyliorhinus canicula (a basal jawed vertebrate) are very similar to those of modern vertebrates. Therefore, the high degree of evolutionary conservation observed in this work could shed light on the ancestral condition of the organization of the cerebellar system.

    7. Distribution of language-related Cntnap2 protein in neural circuits critical for vocal learning (pages 169–185)

      Michael C. Condro and Stephanie A. White

      Article first published online: 26 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cne.23394

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Cntnap2 is implicated in human language disorders and enriched in brain nuclei dedicated to vocal learning in a songbird. The protein expression, like singing, is sexually dimorphic in key song circuit projection neurons, suggesting a common role for Cntnap2 in neural connectivity that underlies the capacity for vocal learning across taxa.

    8. Postnatal developmental expression of regulator of G protein signaling 14 (RGS14) in the mouse brain (pages 186–203)

      Paul R. Evans, Sarah E. Lee, Yoland Smith and John R. Hepler

      Article first published online: 26 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cne.23395

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Using immunoperoxidase labeling on mouse brain sections throughout development, the authors show that Regulator of G Protein Signaling 14 (RGS14) is upregulated throughout postnatal development. This image of a P21 mouse brain highlights that RGS14 is enriched in hippocampal area CA2 while its transient distribution in neocortex is also observable.

    9. Laminar and subcellular heterogeneity of GLAST and GLT-1 immunoreactivity in the developing postnatal mouse hippocampus (pages 204–224)

      Alexandra E. Schreiner, Simone Durry, Tomomi Aida, Martin C. Stock, Ulrich Rüther, Kohichi Tanaka, Christine R. Rose and Karl W. Kafitz

      Article first published online: 26 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cne.23450

      Glutamate transporters are essential for the maintenance of low extracellular glutamate levels. Our study using immunohistochemistry, western blotting, and high-resolution fluorescence microscopy provides evidence for subcellular heterogeneity of GLAST and GLT-1 expression in the developing hippocampus, which might serve a specialized functional role during formation of the hippocampal network.

      Anatomy of hierarchy: Feedforward and feedback pathways in macaque visual cortex (pages 225–259)

      Nikola T. Markov, Julien Vezoli, Pascal Chameau, Arnaud Falchier, René Quilodran, Cyril Huissoud, Camille Lamy, Pierre Misery, Pascale Giroud, Shimon Ullman, Pascal Barone, Colette Dehay, Kenneth Knoblauch and Henry Kennedy

      Article first published online: 26 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/cne.23458

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Interareal pathways come in two flavors. Feedforward and feedback pathways linking cortical areas form dual counter streams where combinatorial distance rules determine a hierarchical organization. In contrast to the infragranular layers, supragranular layers exhibit point-to-point topology in both feedforward and feedback pathways. These findings have important consequences for understanding interareal processing.
