Responses to rotation in many vertical and horizontal planes were studied in electrically identified secondary vestibular neurons of alert cats. This report concerns secondary neurons that gave responses which could not be explained as due to a summation of semicircular canal inputs. These cells responded to sinusoidal rotation of the cat in any vertical(More)
Responses to natural stimulation were studied in electrically identified secondary vestibular neurons of awake cats. A class of neurons was identified whose response dynamics and responses to rotations in several vertical and horizontal planes indicated that they received semicircular canal input. Each canal neuron had clearly defined planes of maximal and(More)
The collective behavior of cortical neurons is strongly affected by the presence of noise at the level of individual cells. In order to study these phenomena in large-scale assemblies of neurons, we consider networks of firing-rate neurons with linear intrinsic dynamics and nonlinear coupling, belonging to a few types of cell populations and receiving noisy(More)
Realistic large-scale networks display a heterogeneous distribution of connectivity weights that might also randomly vary in time. We show that, depending on the level of heterogeneity in the connectivity coefficients, different qualitative macroscopic and microscopic regimes emerge. We evidence, in particular, generic transitions from stationary to(More)
