Lack of spike-count and spike-time correlations in the substantia nigra reticulata despite overlap of neural responses.

Previous studies of single neurons in the substantia nigra reticulata (SNr) have shown that many of them respond to similar events. These results, as well as anatomical studies, suggest that SNr neurons share inputs and thus may have correlated activity. Different types of correlation can exist between pairs of neurons. These are traditionally classified as… CONTINUE READING
