The Map and the Territory: Mapping the Territory Regulated by Serotonergic Signaling at Striatal Projection Neurons

Neuron. 2018 May 16;98(4):679-680. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2018.04.037.


In this issue of Neuron, Cavaccini et al. (2018) identify and thoroughly describe a previously unknown role for hyper-localized serotonergic signaling in the modulation of striatal projection neuron plasticity using electrophysiological, chemogenetic, and optogenetic approaches in addition to advanced imaging technology.
