    Attention-related modulation of caudate neurons depends on superior colliculus activity

    James P Herman et al.
    The pattern of spatial attention preferences in caudate neurons is altered by superior colliculus inactivation, demonstrating that a superior colliculus to basal ganglia link is important for selective attention.

    A projection specific logic to sampling visual inputs in mouse superior colliculus

    Katja Reinhard et al.
    Transsynaptic viral tracing reveals that neurons in the superior colliculus employ projection specific rules to the sampling of retinal inputs, directing distinct visual features to different downstream targets.
    1. Neuroscience

    Bidirectional encoding of motion contrast in the mouse superior colliculus

    Jad Barchini et al.
    Two photon calcium imaging experiments show that excitatory and inhibitory neurons in the mouse superior colliculus are differentially modulated by the motion contrast between stimulus center and surround.

    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.

    The sifting of visual information in the superior colliculus

    Kyu Hyun Lee et al.
    The superior colliculus reveals hallmarks of sophisticated visual computation, including selectivity, invariance, and stimulus-specific habituation to behaviorally relevant stimuli.

    Removal of inhibition uncovers latent movement potential during preparation

    Uday K Jagadisan, Neeraj J Gandhi
    Non-invasive disinhibition of the oculomotor system shows that ongoing preparatory activity in the superior colliculus has movement-generating potential and need not rise to threshold in order to produce a saccade.

    Transcriptomic encoding of sensorimotor transformation in the midbrain

    Zhiyong Xie et al.
    Single-cell RNA-sequencing and neural circuitry analyses reveal that sensorimotor transformation of different behaviors which are performed by separate circuit modules in the superior colliculus are molecularly defined by distinct transcriptomic codes of specific neuron subtypes.

    Instantaneous movement-unrelated midbrain activity modifies ongoing eye movements

    Antimo Buonocore et al.
    Sensory activity within the superior colliculus is read out by downstream motor structures and contributes to individual saccade kinematics with single spike precision.

    Dynamic representation of 3D auditory space in the midbrain of the free-flying echolocating bat

    Ninad B Kothari et al.
    Neurons in the midbrain superior colliculus of free-flying echolocating bats represent 3D sensory space, and the depth tuning of single neurons is modulated by an animal's active sonar inspection of physical objects in its environment.

    Learning speed and detection sensitivity controlled by distinct cortico-fugal neurons in visual cortex

    Sarah Ruediger, Massimo Scanziani
    Neural pathways from mammalian visual cortex to ancestral brain structures control learning speed and performance of a simple detection task.
