Extracellular recordings indicate that mechanisms that control contrast gain of neuronal discharge are found in the retina, thalamus and cortex. In addition, the cortex is able to adapt its contrast response function to match the average local contrast. Here we examine the neuronal mechanism of contrast adaptation by direct intracellular recordings in vivo… CONTINUE READING
