Liqun Luo, PhD

Professor of Biology at Stanford University


In this talk, I will present two unpublished studies. The first study explores the relationship between molecularly defined prefrontal cortex projection neuron types and their activity patterns in cognitive tasks. The second study investigates information transmission between premotor output and cerebellar input during the execution and learning of a motor task.
