Investigating the relationship between tuning and spike timing is necessary to understand how neuronal populations in anterior visual cortex process complex stimuli. Are tuning and spontaneous spike time synchrony linked by a common spatial structure (do some cells covary more strongly, even in the absence of visual stimulation?), and what is the object… (More)
Visual recognition is a computational challenge that is thought to occur via efficient coding. An important concept is sparseness, a measure of coding efficiency. The prevailing view is that sparseness supports efficiency by minimizing redundancy and correlations in spiking populations. Yet, we recently reported that "choristers", neurons that behave more… (More)

This full-length genome sequence of human enterovirus strain 71 (EV71/Taipei/3118/2011) was isolated from a clinical patient in Taiwan in 2011. According to the phylogenetic analysis, the complete genome sequence in this study is part of the subgenotype C4.
UNLABELLED How neuronal ensembles compute information is actively studied in early visual cortex. Much less is known about how local ensembles function in inferior temporal (IT) cortex, the last stage of the ventral visual pathway that supports visual recognition. Previous reports suggested that nearby neurons carry information mostly independently,… (More)
