Beyond the Paper
PhD Candidate Victoria Jensen and Dr. Steven Crone tell the story behind their eNeuro paper that showed that glutamatergic V2a neurons participate in a circuit that serves to constrain the activity of accessory respiratory muscles so that they are active only when needed.
Three graduates from the SfN Reviewer Mentor Program share their thoughts on quality in peer review and discuss their experience reviewing with eNeuro.
Dr. Emanuela De Falco tells the story about her co-first author eNeuro paper that describes distinct neural activity states that occur in the medial prefrontal cortex while rats perform an odor span task of working memory capacity.
PhD Candidate Ruilong Hu and Dr. Ricardo Araneda tell the story about their eNeuro publication that showed that the two predominant subtypes of inhibitory neurons in the main olfactory bulb, the granule cells and periglomerular cells, exhibit subthreshold resonance mediated by hyperpolarization-activated currents (Ih), as opposed to the primary output neurons, the mitral cells.
Dr. Laura Blair tells the story about her first-author eNeuro paper that showed that mice with high expression levels of the FK506-binding protein FKBP51 have altered reversal learning and memory, which may be through direct regulation of neuronal activity by regulating AMPA receptors.
Dr. Jacqueline Barker tells the story about her first-author eNeuro paper that showed that action-outcome relationships are differentially encoded by the infralimbic prefrontal cortex during goal-directed and habitual behaviors.
