Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

How the brain maps sensory information to adaptive behavior remains unresolved. A new study in this issue of Neuron (Le Merre et al., 2017) uncovers learning-related recruitment of higher cortical areas into the rapid sensory processing stream that links a whisker stimulus to rewarded action.
