Multisensory perception: pinpointing visual enhancement by appropriate odors.

Current Biology 25(5):R196 (2015) PMID 25734268

Multisensory contributions to perception are well studied, but their underlying brain mechanisms are poorly understood. A new study has exploited advances in fly optogenetics to pinpoint mechanisms that enhance responses to visual motion in the presence of ecologically relevant odors. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier Ltd.
