Nonlinear stimulus representations in neural circuits with approximate excitatory-inhibitory balance
Balanced excitation and inhibition is widely observed in cortical recordings. How does this balance shape neural computations and stimulus representations? This problem is often studied usingExpand

Nonlinear stimulus representations in neural circuits with approximate excitatory-inhibitory balance
TLDR
We show that every balanced network architecture admits stimuli that break the balanced state and these breaks in balance push the network into a “semi-balanced state” characterized by excess inhibition to some neurons, but an absence of excess excitation to others. Expand
