Behavioural and neuronal correlates of sensory prioritization in the rat whisker system
Animals need to assess when to initiate actions based on uncertain sensory evidence. To formulate a response, decision making systems must prioritize extraction of neuronal signals that represent ecologically relevant events from signals that are behaviorally less relevant. This is commonly known as selective attention. The current thesis aims to investigate two simple forms of attention in rodents: sensory prioritization to a specific modality and temporal...[Show more]
