Spontaneous neural activity has been increasingly recognized as a subject of key relevance in neuroscience. It exhibits nontrivial spatiotemporal structure reflecting the organization of the underlying neural network and has proved to be closely intertwined with stimulus-induced activity patterns. As an additional contribution in this regard, we report(More)
The Locus Coeruleus (LC) modulates cortical, subcortical, cerebellar, brainstem and spinal cord circuits and it expresses receptors for neuromodulators that operate in a time scale of several seconds. Evidences from anatomical, electrophysiological and optogenetic experiments have shown that LC neurons receive input from a group of neurons called(More)
Weakly field electric fishes have an electric sense with two simultaneously processed tasks, called electroloca-tion and electrocommunication [1]. In pulse-type electric fishes, the first task is perceived by deformations of the self-generated electric field [2], and the later one by the precise timestamp of its own pulses and those generated by its(More)
Odor stimuli reaching olfactory systems of mammals and insects are characterized by remarkable non-stationary and noisy time series. Their brains have evolved to discriminate subtle changes in odor mixtures and find meaningful variations in complex spatio-temporal patterns. Insects with small brains can effectively solve two computational tasks: identify(More)
A method for online decorrelation of chemical sensor signals from the effects of environmental humidity and temperature variations is proposed. The goal is to improve the accuracy of electronic nose measurements for continuous monitoring by processing data from simultaneous readings of environmental humidity and temperature. The electronic nose setup built(More)

Recently, Friedman et al performed high-resolution measurements [1] that strongly supported an universal critical character (in the sense of statistical physics) of neuronal avalanches, despite the abnormally high frequency of large events ("bumps " in the distributions of size and lifetime of avalanches) deforming the pure power-law behavior expected from(More)
