Layer IV of the barrel cortex contains an anatomical map of the contralateral whisker pad, which serves as a useful reference in relating receptive field properties of cells to the cortical columns in which they reside. Recent studies have shown that the degree to which the surround receptive fields of layer IV cells are generated intracortically or subcortically depends on whether they lie in barrel or septal columns. To investigate whether this is true for layer V cells, we blocked… CONTINUE READING
