To investigate the properties of excitatory connections between layer 4 pyramidal cells and whether these differed between rat and cat, paired intracellular recordings were made with biocytin filling in slices of adult neocortex. These connections were also compared with those from layer 4 spiny cells to layer 3 pyramids and connections between layer 3 pyramids. Connectivity ratios for layer 4 pyramid-pyramid pairs (1:14 cat, 1:18 rat) appeared lower than for the other types of connections… CONTINUE READING
