  • Encoding of information in the cortex is thought to depend on synchronous firing of cortical neurons. Inhibitory neurons are known to be critical in the coordination of cortical activity, but how interaction among inhibitory cells promotes synchrony is not well understood. To address this issue directly, we have recorded simultaneously from pairs of fast-spiking (FS) cells, a type of γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-containing neocortical interneuron. Here we report a high occurrence of electrical… CONTINUE READING
