Locomotion is a complex motor task generated by spinal circuits driving motoneurons in a precise sequence to control the timing and vigor of movements, but the underlying circuit logic remains to be understood. Here we reveal, in adult zebrafish, how the diversity and selective distribution of two V2a interneuron types within the locomotor network transform commands into an appropriate, task-dependent circuit organization. Bursting-type V2a interneurons with unidirectional axons predominantly… CONTINUE READING
