  author={Steven J. Zottoli and Donald S. Faber}
The Mauthner cell (M-cell) is one of the few identifiable neurons in the vertebrate central nervous system. The ability to locate the M-cell, along with its inputs and outputs, has resulted in important findings in diverse areas of neurobiology including the molecular biology of neurons, synaptic and systems physiology, behavior , development, and neuroethology. The review provides a brief overview of the M-cell and then focuses on recent studies applying state-of-the-art techniques to address… CONTINUE READING
