Researchers Reveal Periaqueductal Gray Neuronal Activities Underlying Differentaspects of Defensive Behaviors
To explore the exact role of PAG in defensive behaviors, Dr. WANG Zuoren’s lab first examined the behavioral effects of optogenetic activation of dorsal PAG in mice. They found that optogenetic activation of neurons in the dorsal PAG was sufficient to induce a series of defensive responses (including running, freezing, and avoidance).....
TMC gene regulates Drosophila larval locomotion
In a recent paper entitled “Transmembrane channel-like (tmc) gene regulates Drosophila larval locomotion” publishedin PNAS USA on June 28th, the research teams of Dr. WANG Zuo-Ren at the Institute of Neuroscience and Dr. JAN Yuh-Nung at UCSF reported that Drosophila TMC regulates fly larval locomotion. Locomotion requires peripheral sensory feedbac....
