The local field potential (LFP) is among the most important experimental measures when probing neural population activity, but a proper understanding of the link between the underlying neural activity and the LFP signal is still missing. Here we investigate this link by mathematical modeling of contributions to the LFP from a single layer-5 pyramidal neuron and a single layer-4 stellate neuron receiving synaptic input. An intrinsic dendritic low-pass filtering effect of the LFP signal… Expand
Active subthreshold dendritic conductances shape the local field potential
TLDR
The results show that the L FP signal can give information about the active properties of neurons and imply that preferred frequencies in the LFP can result from those cellular properties instead of, for example, network dynamics. Expand
Experiments and Models
The local field potential (LFP) is a massed neural signal obtained by low-pass filtering (usually with a cutoff low-pass frequency in the range 100–300 Hz) of the extracellular electrical potentialExpand
How local is the local field potential?
TLDR
Which factors influence the spatial summation of contributions that generate the LFP signal are investigated and the laminar dependence of the reach measure used here is shown and potential implications of the interpretation of experimentally recorded LFPs are discussed. Expand
Frequency Dependence of Signal Power and Spatial Reach of the Local Field Potential
TLDR
A modeling approach based on a well-established biophysical forward-modeling scheme incorporating detailed reconstructed neuronal morphologies in precise calculations of population LFPs including thousands of neurons is pursued. Expand
Origins of 1/f2 scaling in the power spectrum of intracortical local field potential.
TLDR
Recording simultaneously LFP and single neurons from multiple sites in somatosensory cortex of anesthetized rats showed that a 1/f(2) scaling in the LFP power indicates the presence of steplike transitions in theLFP trace and says little about the statistical properties of the associated neuronal firing.

TLDR
A model circuit of interneurons, coupled via both GABAA receptor synapses and electrical synapses, reproduces many essential features of the power spectrum of local field potential (LFP) recordings, such as 1/f power scaling at low frequency, power accumulation in the γ-frequency band, and a robust α rhythm in the absence of stimulation.

The origins of 1 / f 2 scaling in the power spectrum of intra-cortical local field potential
It has been noted that the power spectrum of intra-cortical local field potential (LFP) often scales as 1/f. It is thought that LFP mostly represents the spikingrelated neuronal activity such asExpand
Local field potentials primarily reflect inhibitory neuron activity in human and monkey cortex
TLDR
In human and monkey neocortex, the LFP reflects primarily inhibitory neuron activity, and it is found that the inhibitory st-LFP peaked at shorter latencies, consistently with previous findings in hippocampal slices. Expand

TLDR
The results show that LFPs can give information about the active properties of neurons and that preferred frequencies in the LFP can result from those cellular properties instead of, for example, network dynamics. Expand

Model of low-pass filtering of local field potentials in brain tissue.
TLDR
It is suggested that induced electric fields in passive cells surrounding neurons are the physical origin of frequency filtering properties of LFPs, and this situation is analogous to an equivalent RC circuit, or better yet a system of coupled RC circuits. Expand

Comparing the Feature Selectivity of the Gamma-Band of the Local Field Potential and the Underlying Spiking Activity in Primate Visual Cortex
TLDR
This work examines the relationship of the local field potential to the activity of localized populations of neurons by simultaneously recording spiking activity and LFP from the primary visual cortex of awake, behaving macaques to conclude that the gamma-band of the LFP seems to sample an area considerably larger than orientation columns.

Local Field Potential in Cortical Area MT: Stimulus Tuning and Behavioral Correlations
TLDR
Comparing speed and direction tuning of LFPs obtained from middle temporal area MT with the tuning of multiunit (MU) activity recorded simultaneously found that the LFP can be well tuned for speed anddirection and is highly correlated with that of MU activity, particularly for frequencies at and above the gamma band. Expand
Amplitude variability and extracellular low-pass filtering of neuronal spikes.
TLDR
The influence of neural morphology and passive electrical parameters on the width and amplitude of extracellular spikes is investigated by combined analytical and numerical investigations of idealized and anatomically reconstructed pyramidal and stellate neuron models and a spike-width increase with increasing distance from soma is seen.

Estimation of population firing rates and current source densities from laminar electrode recordings
TLDR
This model study investigates the validity of methods used to interpret linear (laminar) multielectrode recordings and finds the high-frequency part of the potentials (multi-unit activity, MUA) is found to scale approximately as the population firing rate to the power 3/4 and to give excellent estimates of the underlying population firing rates for trial-averaged data.

Encoding of Naturalistic Stimuli by Local Field Potential Spectra in Networks of Excitatory and Inhibitory Neurons
TLDR
This simulated network of excitatory and inhibitory neurons modeling a local cortical population encoded static input spike rates into gamma-range oscillations generated by inhibitory–excitatory neural interactions and encoded slow dynamic features of the input into slow LFP fluctuations mediated by stimulus–neural interactions.

In Vivo Measurement of Cortical Impedance Spectrum in Monkeys: Implications for Signal Propagation
TLDR
It is proposed that the spatial summation of LFP and MUA is determined by the size of these signals' generators and the nature of neural events underlying them, rather than by biophysical properties of gray matter. Expand
Macroscopic models of local field potentials and the apparent 1/f noise in brain activity.
TLDR
It is suggested that ionic diffusion primes over electric field effects, and is responsible for the frequency dependence of local field potentials, and reproduces the 1/f power spectral structure of LFPs, as well as more complex frequency scaling. Expand
