Coherent electrical activity between vibrissa sensory areas of cerebellum and neocortex is enhanced during free whisking.

Abstract

We tested if coherent signaling between the sensory vibrissa areas of cerebellum and neocortex in rats was enhanced as they whisked in air. Whisking was accompanied by 5- to 15-Hz oscillations in the mystatial electromyogram, a measure of vibrissa position, and by 5- to 20-Hz oscillations in the differentially recorded local field potential (nablaLFP… (More)
