  • Understanding how neuromodulators regulate behavior requires investigating their effects on functional neural systems, but also their underlying cellular mechanisms. Utilizing extensively characterized lamprey motor circuits, and the unique access to reticulospinal presynaptic terminals in the intact spinal cord that initiate these behaviors, we investigated effects of presynaptic G-protein-coupled receptors on locomotion from the systems level, to the molecular control of vesicle fusion. 5-HT… CONTINUE READING
