Researchers induced arm movements in macaque monkeys by using optogenetics to target the motor cortex.
SatB2PBN-expressing neurons in the parabrachial nucleus play a key role in processing and encoding sweet tastes. The SatB2PBN neurons relay sweet taste signals from the gustatory thalamus to the cortex in mouse models.
