  1. pmc Synchronized firing in the retina
    Jonathon Shlens
    The Salk Institute, La Jolla, CA, USA
    Curr Opin Neurobiol 18:396-402. 2008
    ..Thus, in the parasol cells, the origin and impact of synchronized firing on the neural code may be understood as locally shared input which influences the visual signals transmitted from eye to brain...

    Jonathon Shlens
    Department of Systems Neurobiology, The Salk Institute, La Jolla, California 92037, USA
    J Neurosci 26:8254-66. 2006
    ..This approach provides a way to define limits on the complexity of network interactions and thus may be relevant for probing the function of many neural circuits...

    Jonathon Shlens
    Salk Institute, La Jolla, CA 92037, USA
    Neural Comput 19:1683-719. 2007

  4. pmc The structure of large-scale synchronized firing in primate retina
    Jonathon Shlens
    The Salk Institute, La Jolla, California 92037, USA
    J Neurosci 29:5022-31. 2009
    ..In sum, large-scale synchronized firing in the entire population of ON-parasol cells appears to reflect simple neighbor interactions, rather than a unique visual signal or a highly redundant coding scheme...

    Greg D Field
    Salk Institute for Biological Studies, La Jolla, California 92037, USA
    J Neurosci 27:13261-72. 2007
