We have recently identified a molecular signature for neurons forming a respiratory nucleus obligatory for the control of breathing by CO2. As it turns out, this signature is shared by only one other group of neurons in the CNS whose function is presently unknown. We want to characterize these neurons anatomically and functionally using conditional expression of viral tracers, calcium imaging and optogenetics. This project is funded by a 2015 ANR grant to Jean-François Brunet & Gilles Fortin.
