Gioele Albisetti's latest publication in NEURON

Inhibitory Kcnip2 neurons of the spinal dorsal horn control behavioral sensitivity to environmental cold
"Albisetti et al. have developed a new tool (‘‘roxed Cre’’) for intersectional targeting of inhibitory Kcnip2 neurons of the spinal dorsal horn. They show that these neurons are key elements of neural circuits that control sensitivity to environmental cold in mice. The neurons may also contribute to cold-induced analgesia.”
