    Spatial cue reliability drives frequency tuning in the barn Owl's midbrain

    Fanny Cazettes et al.
    Space-specific neurons in the owl's auditory midbrain are selective for the frequencies that yield the most reliable sound localization cues.

    Intercollicular commissural connections refine the representation of sound frequency and level in the auditory midbrain

    Llwyd David Orton, Adrian Rees
    Deactivation of one side of the auditory midbrain while recording in the other shows that the two sides cooperate in processing frequency and in enhancing the encoding of sound level.

    Actomyosin regulation by Eph receptor signaling couples boundary cell formation to border sharpness

    Jordi Cayuso et al.
    Boundary cell identity and sharpening of borders are coupled in hindbrain development since both are regulated by mechanical tension.

    A circuit motif in the zebrafish hindbrain for a two alternative behavioral choice to turn left or right

    Minoru Koyama et al.
    Competition between neurons on the left and right sides of the brain drives the decision to turn left versus right in zebrafish, and potentially all vertebrates.

    Dual midbrain and forebrain origins of thalamic inhibitory interneurons

    Polona Jager et al.
    Thalamic interneurons in the mouse thalamus are often overlooked because of their extremely low numbers, however they are developmentally complex and related to those of larger-brained species.

    A role for descending auditory cortical projections in songbird vocal learning

    Yael Mandelblat-Cerf et al.
    Midbrain dopaminergic neurons and a cortex-like structure called the arcopallium form part of a circuit that enables young songbirds to compare their own song with a template stored in memory, and use any discrepancies to improve their performance.

    Emergence of visually-evoked reward expectation signals in dopamine neurons via the superior colliculus in V1 lesioned monkeys

    Norihiro Takakuwa et al.
    The subcortical visual pathway through the midbrain superior colliculus is responsible for visually evoked Pavlovian conditioning and dopamine neuron responses with predicted value in monkeys, which remained after lesioning V1.

    Dopamine regulates stimulus generalization in the human hippocampus

    Thorsten Kahnt, Philippe N Tobler
    Inhibition of dopamine D2 receptors reduces generalization between stimuli, possibly by reducing interactions between the hippocampus and midbrain.

    New insights on the modeling of the molecular mechanisms underlying neural maps alignment in the midbrain

    Elise Laura Savier et al.
    A dominant sensory map provides positional information through correlated activity and transposed molecular cues to guide secondary sensory projections for alignment and organization.
