Vocal neurons encode evolution of frog calls

A study of two closely-related frog species reveals a population of neurons that give rise to the unique mating calls of each species. Published inĀ JNeurosci, the findings suggest that changes in the properties of these cells over the course of evolution may have shaped vocal patterns in vertebrates including bats and primates.
