Temporal Dynamics of Cortical Adaptation

Dalefield, Martin


Adaptation of cortical neurons in response to prior stimulus history and the timecourse of recovery from adaptation were investigated at the level of action potentials using the juxtacellular single-cell loose-patch recording paradigm in the barrel cortex of juvenile rats. An experimental protocol that paired adaptor and test deflections of the principal whisker for a given neuron was applied in two phases of the study. Experiment 1 involved two...[Show more]
