Sensory integration in the whisker pathway
How does the brain use information collected by sensory systems to make decisions? This study combines behavioural experiments with neuronal recording from various brain regions to understand the neuronal mechanisms that integrate sensory signals to generate representations and guide the appropriate behavioural action.
