A flexible bio-inspired hierarchical model for analyzing musical timbre
A flexible and multipurpose bio-inspired hierarchical model for analyzing musical timbre is presented in this paper. Inspired by findings in the fields of neuroscience, computational neuroscience, and psychoacoustics, not ...
Network-selectivity and stimulus-discrimination in the primary visual cortex : cell-assembly dynamics
Abstract : Visual neurons coordinate their responses in relation to the stimulus; however, the complex interplay between a stimulus and the functional dynamics of an assembly still eludes neuroscientists. To this aim, ...
Stimulus-dependant augmented gamma oscillatory activity between the functionally connected cortical neurons in V1
Other titre : Stimulus-dependent augmented gamma oscillatory activity between the functionally connected cortical neurons in the primary visual cortex
Abstract : Neuronal assemblies typically synchronize within the gamma band (30-80 Hz) and are fundamental to information processing. Despite numerous investigations, the exact mechanisms and origins of gamma oscillations ...
Reprogramming of orientation columns in visual cortex : a domino effect
Abstract : Cortical organization rests upon the fundamental principle that neurons sharing similar properties are co-located. In the visual cortex, neurons are organized into orientation columns. In a column, most neurons ...
Modulation of functional connectivity following visual adaptation: homeostasis in V1
Abstract: Sensory neurons exhibit remarkable adaptability in acquiring new optimal selectivity to unfamiliar features when a new stimulus becomes prevalent in the environment. In conventionally prepared adult anesthetized ...
Summation of connectivity strengths in the visual cortex reveals stability of neuronal microcircuits after plasticity
Abstract : Background: Within sensory systems, neurons are continuously affected by environmental stimulation. Recently, we showed that, on cell-pair basis, visual adaptation modulates the connectivity strength between ...
Synergistic activity between primary visual neurons
Abstract : Cortical microcircuitry plays a pivotal role in encoding sensory information reaching the cortex. However, the fundamental knowledge concerning the mechanisms that govern feature-encoding by these sub-networks ...
High noise correlation between the functionally connected neurons in emergent V1 microcircuits
Abstract : Neural correlations (noise correlations and cross-correlograms) are widely studied to infer functional connectivity between neurons. High noise correlations (Rsc) between neurons have been reported to increase ...
Audiovisual correspondence between musical timbre and visual shapes
Abstract : This article investigates the cross-modal correspondences between musical timbre and shapes. Previously, such features as pitch, loudness, light intensity, visual size, and color characteristics have mostly been ...
