  • The balance between excitation and inhibition (E/I balance) is tightly regulated in adult cortices to maintain proper nervous system function. Disturbed E/I balance is associated with numerous neuropsychological disorders, such as autism, epilepsy and schizophrenia. The present review will discuss aspects of Hebbian and homeostatic mechanisms regulating excitatory and inhibitory balance related to sensory processing in somatosensory cortex of rodents. Additionally, changes in the E/I balance… CONTINUE READING
