Cognitive functions go along with complex patterns of distributed activity in neuronal networks, thereby forming assemblies of selected neurons. To support memory processes, such assemblies have to be stabilized and reactivated in a highly reproducible way. The rodent hippocampus provides a well studied model system for network mechanisms underlying spatial(More)
We use second harmonic generation (SHG) imaging to study and quantify a strong intrinsic SHG signal in skeletal muscle fiber preparations and single isolated myofibrils. The intrinsic signal follows the striation pattern of the muscle cells and is positioned at the sarcomeric location of the myosin filaments. Interestingly, the signal is enhanced at the(More)
Input patterns to the olfactory bulb are dynamic and change in an odor-specific manner as measured by selective calcium imaging of olfactory bulb input. To our knowledge, none of the published models of olfactory bulb function uses dynamic input patterns. Therefore we tested how dynamic input alters the behavior of a simple model consisting of two layers.(More)
