Spinal cord neurons that control skilled limb movement identified

Fink, Croce & Huang et al. (2014) Spinal cord neurons that control skilled limb movement identified The precision of skilled movement depends on sensory feedback and its refinement by local inhibitory microcircuits. One specialized set of spinal GABAergic interneurons forms axo–axonic contacts with the central terminals of sensory afferents, exerting presynaptic inhibitory control over sensory–motor […]
