Parent TRAP: Discriminating Infant Cries Requires a Higher-Order Auditory Association Area in Mice

A circuit understanding of how perception links to response requires integrating neural connectivity, activity, and behavior. In this issue of Neuron, Tasaka et al. (2020) target neurons activated by ultrasonic pup vocalizations and discover a functional synaptic network embedded through acoustically selective TeA neurons that help link the calls to a discriminative maternal behavioral response.
