In spatial working memory tasks, pyramidal cells in the relevant cortical circuit receive massive inputs to shape stimulus location-selective sustained activity. A significant part of those inputs are applied onto the dendrites. Considering the dendritic morphology and circuit anatomy together with recently suggested branch-specific plasticity rules, external inputs transmitting the information of the stimulus location would be mapped onto some portion of the dendritic branches, rather than… CONTINUE READING
