A comparison of neuronal and behavioral detection and discrimination performances in rat whisker system
We used the rat whisker touch as a model system to investigate the correlation between the response function of cortical neurons and the behavior of rats in a sensory detection versus discrimination task. The rat whisker–barrel system is structurally well characterized and represents one of the main channels through which rodents collect information about the environment. In experiment 1, we recorded neuronal activity (n = 235) in the whisker area of the rat somatosensory cortex in anesthetized...[Show more]
