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, ...
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 ...
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 ...
