Interactions with male and female intruders activated overlapping neuronal populations in the ventromedial hypothalamus of inexperienced adult male mice, and these ensembles gradually separated as the mice acquired social and sexual experience with conspecifics.
Researchers show that orbitofrontal neurons perform the same value-related computations across different decisions. Value computations are therefore a critical feature around which orbitofrontal representations are organized.
A new study has located 'hot spots' in the rat spinal cord that are associated with leg flexion and extension in rats. Electrical stimulation applied in an alternating pattern between these hot spots facilitated locomotion after the hindlimbs were paralyzed as a result of spinal cord injury (SCI).
