Sensory Symphonies: How Excitatory Spinal Cord Modules Orchestrate Behavior

Neuron. 2021 Jan 6;109(1):3-5. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2020.12.012.


In this issue of Neuron, Gatto et al. (2021) demonstrate that tactile reflexes are driven by excitatory modules defined by location, while Peirs et al. (2021) show that the circuits implicated in the conversion of touch to pain are defined by the nature of the injury.
