    Establishment and maintenance of motor neuron identity via temporal modularity in terminal selector function

    Yinan Li et al.
    The terminal selector-type transcription factor UNC-3/Ebf partially modifies the suite of its target genes at different life stages to establish and maintain the identity of C. elegans motor neurons.

    Controlling motor neurons of every muscle for fly proboscis reaching

    Claire E McKellar et al.
    A new collection of fly strains comprehensively targets the motor neurons of the proboscis, allowing separate control of every muscle to determine how this appendage achieves flexible, directed reaching.

    Neural ensemble dynamics in dorsal motor cortex during speech in people with paralysis

    Sergey D Stavisky et al.
    Neurons in human dorsal motor cortex, an area involved in controlling arm and hand movements, are also active – and show similar ensemble dynamics – during speaking.

    Temporal transcription factors determine circuit membership by permanently altering motor neuron-to-muscle synaptic partnerships

    Julia L Meng et al.
    Acting in neuronal stem cells, temporal transcription factors, as a class of molecules, are uniquely potent determinants of circuit membership that establish expected patterns of wiring in the motor system.

    Stereotyped terminal axon branching of leg motor neurons mediated by IgSF proteins DIP-α and Dpr10

    Lalanti Venkatasubramanian et al.
    Ig domain family members DIP-alpha and Dpr10 are required in a subset of Drosophila leg motor neurons and muscles, respectively, to establish their fine terminal branching pattern and synapses.

    A cell autonomous torsinA requirement for cholinergic neuron survival and motor control

    Samuel S Pappas et al.
    Conditional deletion of the DYT1 dystonia protein torsinA causes selective cell autonomous neurodegeneration of striatal and brainstem cholinergic neurons, and severe motor behavioral abnormalities.

    Analysis of the NK2 homeobox gene ceh-24 reveals sublateral motor neuron control of left-right turning during sleep

    Juliane Schwarz, Henrik Bringmann
    A genetic analysis has identified the cholinergic SIA sublateral motor neurons, which innervate all four body wall muscles separately, as crucial regulators of turning around during sleep in Caenorhabditis elegans.

    Neural population dynamics in human motor cortex during movements in people with ALS

    Chethan Pandarinath et al.
    Neural ensemble activity in the human motor cortex contains dynamical structure that is independent of movement parameters and is not well-explained by current models.

    Frizzled3 controls axonal development in distinct populations of cranial and spinal motor neurons

    Zhong L Hua et al.
    The signaling molecule Frizzled3 plays a part in the development of the nervous system by controlling the ability of motor neurons to form connections with distant target muscles.

    Beta band oscillations in motor cortex reflect neural population signals that delay movement onset

    Preeya Khanna, Jose M Carmena
    Using a sequential neurofeedback-arm reaching task, a new link is established among population neural activity patterns, generation of beta oscillations, and motor behavior changes.
