  1. Rabin E, Gordon A. Prior experience and current goals affect muscle-spindle and tactile integration. Exp Brain Res. 2006;169:407-16 pubmed
    ..We conclude that muscle stretch and tactile cues are integrated to locate the arm within a highly specific context associated with tactile and proprioceptive feedback from prior experience and current movement goals. ..
  2. Lampson M, Kapoor T. Unraveling cell division mechanisms with small-molecule inhibitors. Nat Chem Biol. 2006;2:19-27 pubmed
    ..Because of the highly dynamic nature of cell division, the temporal control over protein function that is possible with small molecules has been particularly valuable in dissecting biological mechanisms. ..
  3. Arber S, Ladle D, Lin J, Frank E, Jessell T. ETS gene Er81 controls the formation of functional connections between group Ia sensory afferents and motor neurons. Cell. 2000;101:485-98 pubmed
    ..ER81 therefore controls a late step in the establishment of functional sensory-motor circuitry in the developing spinal cord. ..
  4. Shneider N, Brown M, Smith C, Pickel J, Alvarez F. Gamma motor neurons express distinct genetic markers at birth and require muscle spindle-derived GDNF for postnatal survival. Neural Dev. 2009;4:42 pubmed publisher
    ..This provides a mouse model with which to explore the specific role of gamma-fusimotor activity in motor behaviors. ..
  5. Ashrafi S, Lalancette H├ębert M, Friese A, Sigrist M, Arber S, Shneider N, et al. Wnt7A identifies embryonic ?-motor neurons and reveals early postnatal dependence of ?-motor neurons on a muscle spindle-derived signal. J Neurosci. 2012;32:8725-31 pubmed publisher
    ..Furthermore, using Wnt7a expression as an early marker of ?-MN identity, we demonstrate a previously unknown dependence of ?-MNs on a muscle spindle-derived, GDNF-independent signal during the first postnatal week. ..
