Friday Paper Post- May 18th 2014 (back from the dead pt. 1)

Unfortunately there were no posts this April; however, much to my relief, the neuroscience community was very considerate towards my blogging schedule and decided to postpone all publications until I could find time to blog about them!!

  • I presented the three papers mentioned at the top of this in a lab meeting once and was delighted by the fact that they each reported slightly different results to a similar question about the role of interneuron subtypes in rodent visual cortex. It’s really cool to get to read these follow up communications!

  • Correlated activity in the brain is a hot topic and in 2010 when Science published Ecker et al. and Renart et al.,  there was a decent the splash in the neuroscience community. This paper above aims to be a follow for some of this work.

  • I was a really big fan of this work when I first caught it at SFN meetings in the past. I was particularly drawn in by the use of optogenetics, intrinsic signal optical imaging, and electrophysiology. Now I am super excited to read the results!
