‘Should I stay or should I go?’ CSHL scientists link brain cell types to behavior

Neuroscientists from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, led by Assistant Professor Adam Kepecs, have linked the activity of two types of brain nerve cells, neurons, to decisions made during particular type of behavior. The team studied the activity of two types of inhibitory neurons in mice making decisions searching for food in a test area. They found distinct patterns of activity that marked when «stay» or to «go» foraging decisions were made.
