Abstract

It is unknown how neural activity is coordinated among lateral hypothalamic area (LH) neurons, which generate fundamental behavioral actions such as attack and evasion. Burdakov and Karnani show there is near-zero local connectivity in the LH, suggesting that incoming synaptic input is integrated primarily within individual neurons.
