Title: Acetylcholine Functionally Reorganizes Neocortical Microcircuits 1 Abbreviated Title: Acetylcholine Functionally Reorganizes Neocortical Microcircuits 2 3 Author Names and Affiliation, including Postal Codes: 4 Introduction

41 Sensory information is processed and transmitted through the synaptic structure of local cortical 42 circuits, but it is unclear how modulation of this architecture influences the cortical 43 representation of sensory stimuli. Acetylcholine (ACh) promotes attention and arousal and is 44 thought to increase the signal-to-noise ratio of sensory input in… CONTINUE READING
