Tracking self-performance in the prefrontal cortex: It's layered

Shannon S. Schiereck, Christine M. Constantinople

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this issue of Cell, Spellman and colleagues record and manipulate the activity of neurons in the medial prefrontal cortex of mice performing a task in which they must pay attention to different stimuli. They show that this brain region is important for monitoring the animals’ performance, and neurons that appear to contribute to behavior reside in deep cortical layers.
