Motor behavior: A feedforward circuit for zebrafish escape

Kevin W. Christie, Kristen E. Severi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A recent study of motor control in zebrafish demonstrates the critical role of an excitatory neural relay network in the transformation of a unilateral turn command into a subsequent bilateral swim signal. A rapid and smooth transition between these motor phases is critical for successfully escaping danger.
