Layer-V pyramidal cells comprise a major output of primary auditory cortex (A1). At least two cell types displaying different morphology, projections and in vitro physiology have been previously identified in layer-V. The focus of the present study was to characterize extracellular receptive field properties of layer-V neurons to determine whether a similar breakdown of responses can be found in vivo. Recordings from 105 layer-V neurons revealed two predominant receptive field types. Thirty-two… CONTINUE READING
