Sensory Prioritization in Rats: Behavioral Performance and Neuronal Correlates

Lee, Conrad C Y; Diamond, Mathew E; Arabzadeh, Ehsan

Description

UNLABELLED Operating with some finite quantity of processing resources, an animal would benefit from prioritizing the sensory modality expected to provide key information in a particular context. The present study investigated whether rats dedicate attentional resources to the sensory modality in which a near-threshold event is more likely to occur. We manipulated attention by controlling the likelihood with which a stimulus was presented from one of two modalities. In a whisker session, 80% of...[Show more]
