Cortical Efferent Control of Subcortical Sensory Neurons by Synaptic Disinhibition.

Hennenberger, Christian; Redman, Stephen; Grantyn, Rosmarie


A long-standing hypothesis predicts that pyramidal neurons of the cerebral cortex control the influx of sensory information at the level of primary sensory representations areas. Yet little is known about the cellular mechanisms governing selective attention to behaviorally relevant objects in space. Neurons in the superficial layers of the superior colliculus are notably involved in this process, and they are directly targeted by retinal and cortical afferents. To study long-term and...[Show more]
