Negatively correlated firing: the functional meaning of lateral inhibition within cortical columns

Simon Durrant, Jianfeng Feng
2006 Biological cybernetics  
In this paper, we outline a model of position tracking using cortical columns of integrate-and-fire neurons which respond optimally to a particular location, to show that negatively-correlated firing patterns  ...  However, these accounts fail to explain the functional role of inhibition in cortical columns, such as those in V1, where neurons have similar response properties.  ...  Lateral inhibition within columns means neurons with the same response properties inhibiting each other. What could be the functional role for this local inhibitory mechanism?  ...

Uncorrelated Neural Firing in Mouse Visual Cortex during Spontaneous Retinal Waves

Matthew T. Colonnese, Jing Shen, Yasunobu Murata
2017 Frontiers in Cellular Neuroscience  
However, whether the micro-patterning of activity within early bursts is unique to this early age and specifically tuned for early development is poorly understood, particularly within the column.  ...  These findings suggest that the bursts of spontaneous activity during early visual development do not drive hyper-synchronous activity within columns.  ...  spike correlations within a cortical column.  ...

Sleep, synaptic homeostasis and neuronal firing rates

Chiara Cirelli
2017 Current Opinion in Neurobiology  
I will emphasize that central to SHY is the idea that what is being regulated across the sleep/wake cycle is synaptic strength, not firing rate, and firing rate taken in isolation is not necessarily an  ...  The synaptic homeostasis hypothesis (SHY) states that wake brings about a net overall increase in synaptic strength in many brain circuits that needs to be renormalized by sleep.  ...  Acknowledgments Supported by National Institute of Health grants 1R01MH099231 and 1P01NS083514.
