Journal Club : Classic Single Unit Physiology in Barrel Cortex

29 04 2011

This one is for the aficionados. Here is a little review of four classic single-unit physiology papers investigating the response properties and information flow from whisker through thalamus and into cortex.  It’s quite interesting comparing this data taken from sedated or anesthetized rats to my own in awake, behaving animals. That’s a story for another time and publication venue though 🙂
