An important outstanding question in auditory neuroscience is to identify the mechanisms by which specific motifs within inter-connected neural circuits affect auditory processing and, ultimately, behavior. In the auditory cortex, a combination of large-scale electrophysiological recordings and concurrent optogenetic manipulations are improving our understanding of the role of inhibitory–excitatory interactions. At the same time, computational approaches have grown to incorporate diverse… CONTINUE READING
