Anatomical identification of extracellularly recorded cells in large-scale multielectrode recordings.
(J Neurosci, 2015-03-18)
This study combines for the first time two major approaches to understanding the function and structure of neural circuits: large-scale multielectrode recordings, and confocal imaging of labeled neurons. To achieve this ...
A polyaxonal amacrine cell population in the primate retina.
(The Journal of neuroscience : the official journal of the Society for Neuroscience, 2014-03)
Amacrine cells are the most diverse and least understood cell class in the retina. Polyaxonal amacrine cells (PACs) are a unique subset identified by multiple long axonal processes. To explore their functional properties, ...
High-sensitivity rod photoreceptor input to the blue-yellow color opponent pathway in macaque retina.
(Nat Neurosci, 2009-09)
Small bistratified cells (SBCs) in the primate retina carry a major blue-yellow opponent signal to the brain. We found that SBCs also carry signals from rod photoreceptors, with the same sign as S cone input. SBCs exhibited ...
Efficient coding of spatial information in the primate retina.
(The Journal of neuroscience : the official journal of the Society for Neuroscience, 2012-11)
Sensory neurons have been hypothesized to efficiently encode signals from the natural environment subject to resource constraints. The predictions of this efficient coding hypothesis regarding the spatial filtering properties ...
Correlated firing among major ganglion cell types in primate retina.
(The Journal of physiology, 2011-01)
Retinal ganglion cells exhibit substantial correlated firing: a tendency to fire nearly synchronously at rates different from those expected by chance. These correlations suggest that network interactions significantly shape ...
Functional connectivity in the retina at the resolution of photoreceptors.
To understand a neural circuit requires knowledge of its connectivity. Here we report measurements of functional connectivity between the input and ouput layers of the macaque retina at single-cell resolution and the implications ...
