Bursting thalamic responses in awake monkey contribute to visual detection and are modulated by corticofugal feedback

Abstract

The lateral geniculate nucleus is the gateway for visual information en route to the visual cortex. Neural activity is characterized by the existence of two firing modes: burst and tonic. Originally associated with sleep, bursts have now been postulated to be a part of the normal visual response, structured to increase the probability of cortical activation… (More)
