Neuroscience: How the brain prioritizes behaviors

Curr Biol. 2021 Oct 11;31(19):R1125-R1127. doi: 10.1016/j.cub.2021.08.048.


To optimize our choices, we need to prioritize among different goals. A recent study used a new Drosophila behavioral paradigm, bringing together conflicting behavioral choices in the context of different internal states and sensory cues, to provide foundational insights into the circuit mechanisms underlying how the brain prioritizes behavioral decisions.
