Dendritic integration of sensory information in perceptual decision-making

Abstract:

Perceptual decisions require the temporal integration of sensory evidence to a response threshold. How the brain performs this operation is unknown. In fruit flies, expression of the forkhead box P transcription factor (FoxP) in αβ core (αβc) Kenyon cells of the mushroom bodies influences decision times in odour discrimination tasks. Flies with a hypomorphic mutation in the FoxP locus take longer to commit to a choice than wild-type flies, especially in difficult tasks....
