  • In the brain stem trigeminal nuclei of rodents there is a patterned representation of whiskers and sinus hairs. The subnucleus interpolaris (SPI) contains the largest and the most conspicuous whisker patterns (barrelettes). Although neural activity plays a role in pattern formation, little is known about the electrophysiological properties of developing barrelette neurons. Here we examined the functional state of early postnatal SPI neurons during and after the consolidation of patterns by… CONTINUE READING
