It is believed that locus coeruleus (LC) influences the sensory information processing. However, its role in cortical surround inhibitory mechanism is not well established. In this experiment, using controlled mechanical displacement of whiskers; we investigated the effect of electrical stimulation of LC on response of layer V barrel cortical neurons in(More)
OBJECTIVE Epileptic seizure detection is a key step for epilepsy assessment. In this work, using the pentylenetetrazole (PTZ) model, seizures were induced in rats, and ECoG signals in interictal, preictal, ictal, and postictal periods were recorded. The recorded ECoG signals were then analyzed to detect epileptic seizures in the epileptic rats. METHODS(More)
Introduction: It is believed that Locus Coeruleus (LC) influences the sensory information processing. However, its role in cortical surround inhibitory mechanism is not understood. In this experiment, using controlled mechanical displacement of whiskers; we investigated the effect of phasic electrical stimulation of LC on response of layer V barrel cortical(More)
