Simulating In Vivo Background Activity in a Slice with the Dynamic Clamp

Abstract

Neurons in vivo receive a large amount of internally generated “background” activity in addition to synaptic input directly driven by an external stimulus. Stimulus-driven and background synaptic inputs interact, through the nonlinearities of neuronal integration, in interesting ways. The dynamic clamp can be used in vitro to duplicate background input… (More)
