Building corticocerebellar neural circuits
In a comprehensive study, researchers from the Rijli group found that a single Hox transcription factor expressed in a group of neurons of the pontine nucleus - the cerebral cortex most important brainstem relay to the cerebellum - determines the wiring onto these neurons of specific cortical neurons. These findings further our understanding of the molecular logic underlying complex corticocerebellar circuit assembly.
