Spatial and temporal scales of neuronal correlation in visual area V4.
(J Neurosci, 2013-03-20)
The spiking activity of nearby cortical neurons is correlated on both short and long time scales. Understanding this shared variability in firing patterns is critical for appreciating the representation of sensory stimuli ...
Frontal eye field neurons assess visual stability across saccades.
(J Neurosci, 2012-02-22)
The image on the retina may move because the eyes move, or because something in the visual scene moves. The brain is not fooled by this ambiguity. Even as we make saccades, we are able to detect whether visual objects remain ...
Auditory signals evolve from hybrid- to eye-centered coordinates in the primate superior colliculus.
(Journal of neurophysiology, 2012-07)
Visual and auditory spatial signals initially arise in different reference frames. It has been postulated that auditory signals are translated from a head-centered to an eye-centered frame of reference compatible with the ...
Retinal representation of the elementary visual signal.
The propagation of visual signals from individual cone photoreceptors through parallel neural circuits was examined in the primate retina. Targeted stimulation of individual cones was combined with simultaneous recording ...
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 ...
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 ...
