Recently, it has been shown that when the timing of spikes is measured relative to the phase of the cortical local field potentials (LFP), spikes can carry substantial more information about an external stimulus [1]. Experimental studies in sensory cortices of macaque have shown that the extra information obtained with such phase-of-firing codes above that(More)
In the phase-of-firing (PoF) code the information carried by spikes is boosted when their firing is measured against the angular phase of the local extracellular signal. This coding strategy has been verified so far in visual and auditory cortices of monkeys at low frequencies [1,2]. Here we present the first evidence of this code in whisker modality. In(More)
Melanopsin photoreceptors make a third type of photoreceptor along with rods and cones in human and mouse. Until recently melanopsin was thought to participate only in subconscious responses to light (such as pupillary reflexes and regulating the circadian rhythm) and not in image-forming visual responses. Recently, it has been shown that melanopsin derived(More)
