Math1: Waiting to Inhale

Robert P. Machold, Gord Fishell

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


The proneural gene Math1 is known to be involved in numerous functions within the nervous system, including unconscious proprioception, audition, and arousal. Two recent papers by the Zoghbi group in this issue of Neuron and a recent issue of PNAS now identify a critical role for this gene in the development of brainstem regions critical for conscious proprioception, interoception, and respiration.
