Optogenetic analysis of inhibitory circuits in the neocortex

Abstract:

Information processing in the brain involves circuits composed of different classes of neurons. Inhibitory interneurons are by far the most diverse subgroup in terms of physiology and morphology, and the principles that govern their connectivity are far from understood. Their excitatory counterparts, pyramidal and spiny stellate cells, have been found to be governed by a compartmentalized horizontal and vertical structure – forming layers and columns – as well as by a stereotypic or “canon...
