In: Cerebral Cortex, 2012, vol. 22, p. 175-190

The insula of Reil represents a large cortical territory buried in the depth of the lateral sulcus and subdivided into 3 major cytoarchitectonic domains: agranular, dysgranular, and granular. The present study aimed at reinvestigating the architectonic organization of the monkey's insula using multiple immunohistochemical stainings (parvalbumin, PV; nonphosphorylated neurofilament protein, with...

The thalamocortical projection systems in Primate: an anatomical support for multisensory and sensorimotor interplay

Cappe, Céline ; Morel, Anne ; Barone, Pascal ; Rouiller, Eric M.

In: Cerebral Cortex, 2009, vol. 19, no. 9, p. 2025-2037

Multisensory and sensorimotor integrations are usually considered to occur in superior colliculus and cerebral cortex, but few studies proposed the thalamus as being involved in these integrative processes. We investigated whether the organization of the thalamocortical (TC) systems for different modalities partly overlap, representing an anatomical support for multisensory and sensorimotor...

Divergence and convergence of thalamocortical projections to premotor and supplementary motor cortex: a multiple tracing study in the macaque monkey

Morel, Anne ; Liu, Jian ; Wannier, Thierry ; Jeanmonod, Daniel ; Rouiller, Eric M.

In: European Journal of Neuroscience, 2005, vol. 21(4), p. 1007

The premotor cortex of macaque monkeys is currently subdivided into at least six different subareas on the basis of structural, hodological and physiological criteria. To determine the degree of divergence/convergence of thalamocortical projections to mesial [supplementary motor area (SMA)-proper and pre-SMA] and lateral (PMd-c, PMd-r, PMv-c and PMv-r) premotor (PM) subareas, quantitative...
