Cells in the rodent barrel cortex respond to vibrissa deflection with a brief excitatory component and a longer suppressive component. The response to a given deflection is thus scaled because of suppression induced by a preceding deflection, causing the neuronal response to be linked to the temporal properties of the peripheral stimulus. A paired-deflection stimulus was used to characterize the postexcitatory suppression and a 3-deflection stimulus was used to investigate the nonlinear… CONTINUE READING
