This interaction, however, is not well understood at either the behavioral or neural level. We developed a procedure for mice in which a cognitive measure, sustained attention, is modulated by a motivationally(More)
The balance of excitation and inhibition within most sensory cortices is co-tuned to a given stimulus.

Further in vitro physiology has demonstrated that this global(More)
