Sensory and Motor Systems
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.
Authors show that although handedness impacts the accuracy of hand movement control, it has virtually no influence on the ability to predict the visual consequences of hand movements.
Authors show that one olfactory cortical structure, the olfactory tubercle, is unique among olfactory cortices in that it lacks feedback projections to the olfactory bulb.
Authors demonstrate that in the absence of descending cephalic input, locomotor recovery in the leech is achieved by a switch to dependence on afferent information from peripheral nerves in the body wall.
A new study shows that advillin expression is NOT limited to sensory neurons in postnatal and adult mouse
