Abstract

The influence of motor cortex on muscles during different behaviors is incompletely understood. In this issue of Neuron, Miri et al. (2017) show that the population activity patterns produced by motor cortex during different behaviors determine the selective routing of signals along different pathways between motor cortex and muscles.
