For multi-scale and multi-modal neural modeling, it is needed to handle multiple neural models described at different levels seamlessly. Database technology will become more important for these studies, specifically for downloading and handling the neural models seamlessly and effortlessly. To date, conventional neuroinformatics databases have solely been(More)
The brain is a complex information processing system, which can be divided into sub-systems, such as the sensory organs, functional areas in the cortex, and motor control systems. In this sense, most of the mathematical models developed in the field of neuroscience have mainly targeted a specific sub-system. In order to understand the details of the brain(More)
The eyes are continuously fluctuating even during fixation. The fluctuations are called miniature eye movements and consist of microsaccades, drifts, and tremors. It has been revealed that these miniature eye movements aid our vision; they improve the visibility of high spatial frequency components, and prevent retinal adaptation during fixation. Although(More)

Microiontophoresis of neuroactive substances during single unit recording in awake behaving animals can significantly advance our understanding of neural circuit function. Here, we present a detailed description of a method for constructing carbon fiber multibarrel electrodes suitable for delivering drugs while simultaneously recording single unit activity(More)
Saccadic eye movements are made about twice a second to shift our gaze either consciously or unconsciously. Brainstem burst neurons trigger each saccade with a bursting activity closely related to saccadic velocity that must be transformed into persistent firing activity to maintain post-saccadic eye position. A conceptual neural mechanism achieving this(More)
Computational models and theoretical tools are essential components in computational neuroscience. A number of models and tools have been developed and registered at various online databases such as ModelDB and J-Node Platforms. Yet, the reuse of such resources still remains quite difficult. For example, to carry out a computer simulation of a model, we(More)
