The correct functioning of the mammalian brain depends on the integrated activity of myriad neuronal and non-neuronal cells. Throughout, neuronal networks are under the control of neuromodulatory systems. One goal of current neuroscientific research is to elucidate how these systems operate, especially during normal conscious behaviours and processes. Mircea Steriade and Denis Paré describe the neuronal properties and networks that exist within and between the cortex and two important… CONTINUE READING
