Research reveals first glimpse of brain circuit that helps experience to shape perception

Scientists from CSHL demonstrate for the first time a way to observe how our experiences shape sensory information in awake animals. The team was able to measure the activity of a group of inhibitory neurons that links the odor-sensing area of the brain with brain areas responsible for thought and cognition. This connection provides feedback so that memories and experiences can alter the way smells are interpreted.
