The rat facial whiskers form a high-resolution sensory apparatus for tactile information coding and are used by these animals for the exploration and perception of their environment. Previous work on the rat vibrissae system obtained evidence for vibration-based feature extraction by the whiskers, texture classification by the cortical neurons, and(More)
Oscillatory activity at both the single and multiunit levels has been reported in most central nervous system structures, and is postulated as a key factor in information processing and coding. Rats provide an excellent model for oscillation-based information processing, since tactile perception of the environment is achieved by rhythmic movements of their(More)
