ABSTRACT
In zebrafish, the dorsal habenula shows conspicuous left-right differences. New research shows that the left and right habenula differentially process visual and olfactory information. Spontaneous activity in habenular circuits may lead to activation of distinct neuronal targets and behavioral programs.
