Neural Circuits: Male Mating Motifs.


Characterizing microcircuit motifs in intact nervous systems is essential to relate neural computations to behavior. In this issue of Neuron, Clowney et al. (2015) identify recurring, parallel feedforward excitatory and inhibitory pathways in male Drosophila’s courtship circuitry, which might explain decisive mate choice.
