Fifty-three cell pairs in the somatosensory cerebral cortex were examined in pentobarbital-anesthetized cats for evidence of short latency interactions. Many neuronal pairs separated by distances of 150 to 500 micron were observed to have temporal dependencies. In a subset of 19 pairs where the surrounding multiunit activity could be classified as rapidly adapting or slowly adapting, short latency interactions existed only between cell pairs sharing the same multiunit background activity.
