  1. pmc Optogenetic control of cells and circuits
    Gero Miesenbock
    Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour, Department of Physiology, Anatomy, and Genetics, University of Oxford, Oxford OX1 3TA, United Kingdom
    Annu Rev Cell Dev Biol 27:731-58. 2011
    ..The impact of optogenetic control is also beginning to be felt in other areas of cell and organismal biology...
  2. pmc The columnar and laminar organization of inhibitory connections to neocortical excitatory cells
    Dennis Kätzel
    Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK
    Nat Neurosci 14:100-7. 2011
    ..Although inhibitory connection patterns were stereotypical, the abundance of individual motifs varied between regions and cells, potentially reflecting functional specializations...

    Gero Miesenbock
    Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, University of Oxford, Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3PT, UK
    Science 326:395-9. 2009
    ..These catechisms are beginning to yield previously unattainable insight into the organization of neural circuits, the regulation of their collective dynamics, and the causal relationships between cellular activity patterns and behavior...
  4. ncbi request reprint FoxP influences the speed and accuracy of a perceptual decision in Drosophila
    Shamik Dasgupta
    Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour, University of Oxford, Tinsley Building, Mansfield Road, Oxford, OX1 3SR, UK
    Science 344:901-4. 2014
    ..A mushroom body subdomain whose development or function require the transcription factor FoxP thus supports the progression of a decision toward commitment. ..

    Gero Miesenbock
    University of Oxford, UK
    Sci Am 299:52-9. 2008
  6. pmc Sparse, decorrelated odor coding in the mushroom body enhances learned odor discrimination
    Andrew C Lin
    Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK
    Nat Neurosci 17:559-68. 2014
    ..These results suggest that feedback inhibition suppresses Kenyon cell activity to maintain sparse, decorrelated odor coding and thus the odor specificity of memories. ..
  7. pmc Neuronal machinery of sleep homeostasis in Drosophila
    Jeffrey M Donlea
    Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour, University of Oxford, Tinsley Building, Mansfield Road, Oxford OX1 3SR, UK
    Neuron 81:860-72. 2014
    ..Sleep pressure thus shifts the input-output function of sleep-promoting neurons toward heightened activity by modulating ion channel function in a mechanism dependent on Cv-c. ..
  8. pmc Experience-dependent rewiring of specific inhibitory connections in adult neocortex
    Dennis Kätzel
    Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour, University of Oxford, Oxford, United Kingdom
    PLoS Biol 12:e1001798. 2014
    ..Whisker regrowth restored the original balance of inhibition from deep and superficial layers. Targeted, reversible modifications of specific inhibitory wiring motifs thus contribute to the adaptive remodeling of cortical circuits. ..
  9. pmc Writing memories with light-addressable reinforcement circuitry
    Adam Claridge-Chang
    Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, University of Oxford, Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PT, UK
    Cell 139:405-15. 2009
    ..The delineation of core reinforcement circuitry is an essential first step in dissecting the neural mechanisms that compute and represent valuations, store associations, and guide actions...
