The study previously published as the first preprint from our lab and the Aso lab is now published in eLife! In this work, we went beyond the simple associative learning and identified a key circuit that underlies second-order conditioning, which is a form of higher-order learning observed in many different vertebrate and invertebrate species. The paper reveals the importance of interconnections between dopaminergic systems for complex learning.
Another collaborative work with the Aso lab in Janelia Research Campus has been published on bioRxiv. This study is closely related to our previous preprint, which received positive comments from eLife reviewers.
