Abstract

A challenge for neurobiology is to integrate information across many levels of research, ranging from behaviour and neuronal networks to cells and molecules. The rodent whisker signalling pathway to the primary somatosensory neocortex with its remarkable somatotopic barrel map is emerging as a key system for such integrative studies.
