Primary sensory cortical areas continuously receive thalamic inputs that arrive at different frequencies depending on the amount of sensory activity. The cortical response to repeated sensory stimuli rapidly adapts and different frequencies recruit cortical neuronal networks to different extents. GABAergic inhibition limits the spread of excitation within cortical neuronal networks. However, it is unknown how frequency adaptation of cortical network activity at different frequencies is shaped… CONTINUE READING
