A Quantitative Map of the Circuit of Cat Primary Visual Cortex
TLDR
A quantitative description of the circuits formed in cat area 17 is developed by estimating the “weight” of the projections between different neuronal types by applying the simplification that synapses between different cell types are made in proportion to the boutons and dendrites that those cell types contribute to the neuropil in a given layer. Expand
Neuronal circuits of the neocortex.
TLDR
It is found that, as has long been suspected by cortical neuroanatomists, the same basic laminar and tangential organization of the excitatory neurons of the neocortex is evident wherever it has been sought. Expand
Comparison of discharge variability in vitro and in vivo in cat visual cortex neurons.
TLDR
A new measure of variability is developed, which compares only adjacent interspike intervals and is therefore less sensitive to rate variations than existing measures such as the coefficient of variation of interspiking intervals, which finds that the variability of firing is much higher in cells of primary visual cortex in the anesthetized cat than in slice.

TrakEM2 Software for Neural Circuit Reconstruction
TLDR
A software application, TrakEM2, is designed that addresses the systematic reconstruction of neuronal circuits from large electron microscopical and optical image volumes and addresses the challenges of image volume composition from individual, deformed images. Expand
Precursor Diversity and Complexity of Lineage Relationships in the Outer Subventricular Zone of the Primate
TLDR
It is shown that primate cortical neurons are generated through complex lineages by a mosaic of precursors, thereby providing an innovative framework for understanding specific features of primate corticogenesis. Expand
A functional microcircuit for cat visual cortex.
TLDR
The microcircuit simulates with good fidelity the intracellular responses of neurones in cat visual cortex to electrical pulse stimulation of the cortical afferents and provides a novel explantation for the apparent lack of significant inhibition during visual stimulation. Expand
Digital selection and analogue amplification coexist in a cortex-inspired silicon circuit
TLDR
The model of cortical processing is presented as an electronic circuit that emulates this hybrid operation, and so is able to perform computations that are similar to stimulus selection, gain modulation and spatiotemporal pattern generation in the neocortex. Expand
A VLSI array of low-power spiking neurons and bistable synapses with spike-timing dependent plasticity
TLDR
The results indicate that analog circuits designed to implement the silicon neurons and synapses can be used in massively parallel VLSI networks of I&F neurons to simulate real-time complex spike-based learning algorithms. Expand
Analog VLSI: Circuits and Principles
TLDR
This book presents the central concepts required for the creative and successful design of analog VLSI circuits and discusses device physics, linear and nonlinear circuit forms, translinear circuits, photodetectors, floating-gate devices, noise analysis, and process technology. Expand
Polyneuronal innervation of spiny stellate neurons in cat visual cortex
TLDR
The analysis supports the hypothesis that the spiny stellate receives polyneuronal innervation, perhaps from all the sources of boutons in layer 4 of cat visual cortex, and characterised the synapses of four likely sources of innervation by three simple criteria. Expand
