Spontaneous activity resembling tone-evoked activity in the primary auditory cortex of guinea pigs.

In the primary auditory cortex (AI), a pure tone evokes propagating activity along a strip of the cortex. We have previously shown that focal activation of AI triggers autonomously propagating activity that resembles tone-evoked activity (Song et al., 2006). Because a focal spontaneous activity is expected to trigger similar activity propagation… CONTINUE READING
