To examine whether the directionality index of neural information flow (NIF) over specific oscillatory bands is useful in measuring synaptic plasticity, we employed the IM approach to determine the direction of NIF between the cortex and thalamus in normal and stressed animals. The experiment was performed by inducing long-term potentiation (LTP) of the thalamocortical pathway after recording local field potential (LFP). Additionally, comparison of IM measurement between broad- and narrowbands… CONTINUE READING
