This is the concluding article in a series of 3 studies that investigate the anatomical determinants of thalamocortical (TC) input to excitatory neurons in a cortical column of rat primary somatosensory cortex (S1). We used viral synaptophysin-enhanced green fluorescent protein expression in thalamic neurons and reconstructions of biocytin-labeled cortical(More)
Recent trends in neuroscience have narrowed the scope of this field, notably through the progressive elimination of 'model systems' that were key to the development of modern molecular, developmental and functional neuroscience. Although the fantastic opportunities offered by modern molecular biology entirely justify the use of selected organisms (e.g., for(More)
Optimizing spike-sorting algorithms is difficult because sorted clusters can rarely be checked against independently obtained "ground truth" data. In most spike-sorting algorithms in use today, the optimality of a clustering solution is assessed relative to some assumption on the distribution of the spike shapes associated with a particular single unit(More)
