  1. pmc Parallel processing of visual space by neighboring neurons in mouse visual cortex
    Spencer L Smith
    Wolfson Institute for Biomedical Research and Department of Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology, University College London, London, UK
    Nat Neurosci 13:1144-9. 2010
    ..Our results suggest that a limited pool of afferent receptive fields is available to a local population of neurons and reveal new organizational principles for the neural circuitry of the mouse visual cortex...
  2. pmc The refinement of ipsilateral eye retinotopic maps is increased by removing the dominant contralateral eye in adult mice
    Spencer L Smith
    Department of Neurobiology, University of California Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 5:e9925. 2010
    ..In addition, we examined whether the increased refinement involved the recruitment of adjacent cortical area...
  3. pmc Ipsilateral eye cortical maps are uniquely sensitive to binocular plasticity
    Joshua Faguet
    Department of Neurobiology, The David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA, 635 Charles Young Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90095, USA
    J Neurophysiol 101:855-61. 2009
    ..Our findings indicate that although both contra- and ipsilateral eye pathways require visual experience for their maintenance, ipsilateral eye projections bear an additional, unique sensitivity to binocular interactions...
  4. ncbi Experience-dependent binocular competition in the visual cortex begins at eye opening
    Spencer L Smith
    Department of Neurobiology, University of California at Los Angeles, 695 Charles Young Drive South, Los Angeles, California 90095 1761, USA
    Nat Neurosci 10:370-5. 2007
    ..Furthermore, these results suggest that the quality of activity, in terms of signal to noise, and not the quantity, determines robust receptive field development...
  5. pmc Target-specific effects of somatostatin-expressing interneurons on neocortical visual processing
    James C H Cottam
    Wolfson Institute for Biomedical Research and Department of Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology, University College London, London WC1E 6BT, United Kingdom
    J Neurosci 33:19567-78. 2013
    ..This prominent competitive inhibition between interneuron types leads to a reconfiguration of inhibition along the somatodendritic axis of pyramidal cells, and enhances the orientation selectivity of PV(+) cells. ..

    Nature 503:115-20. 2013
    ..Thus, dendritic excitability is an essential component of behaviourally relevant computations in neurons. ..
