Summary: The striatum and premotor cortex show altered patterns in neural activity when encoding time. The dynamics of the striatum were more sequential than those of the premotor cortex.
Summary: When a mouse senses a threat, neurons in the ventromedial hypothalamus become activated and remain active for ten seconds after the threat is removed. Fear responses could be induced by artificially […]
