Title : Low - Threshold Ca 2 + - Associated Bursts are Rare Events in the LGN of the Awake


It has been proposed that low-threshold Ca (LT) associated bursts in the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) of awake animals communicate significant or unexpected visual events to cortex (Sherman 2001). The present study investigated this hypothesis by examining the incidence of LT bursts in 146 cells recorded from the LGN of three macaque monkeys. Bursts… (More)
