Inhibition stabilization in the mouse cortex: how local circuitry constrains cortical responses
Sponsor(s): Duke Institute for Brain Sciences (DIBS) and Neurobiology
Dr. Mark Histed's research interests: A single sensory stimulus or motor action changes the activity of thousands or more neurons in the mammalian cerebral cortex. Dr. Histed's group uses sensory behavior in the mouse, combined with in vivo electrophysiology, optogenetics, and two-photon imaging, to understand how the brain interprets the activity of many cells --- how the brain decodes neurons' spikes to make decisions.
