Publisher's Summary

Scientists made select nerve cells in mice’s brains sensitive to light and then used lasers to activate specific groups of those nerve cells. By turning different cells on and off, the researchers found two separate sets of nerve cells relaying hunting-related messages from the amygdala’s central nucleus.

"Two Brain Circuits Help Mice Hunt" is from the February 18, 2017 issue of Science News.
