- Chasing the cell assemblyDamian J Wallace
Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, Tubingen, Germany
Curr Opin Neurobiol 20:296-305. 2010..In this review, we aim to outline some recent technical advances, which may light the way in the chase for the functional cell assembly...
- Two-photon calcium imaging of evoked activity from L5 somatosensory neurons in vivoWolfgang Mittmann
Network Imaging Group, Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, Tubingen, Germany
Nat Neurosci 14:1089-93. 2011..In addition, we found that RAMM could be used to simultaneously image activity from large (80) populations of apical dendrites and follow these dendrites down to their somata of origin...
- Rats maintain an overhead binocular field at the expense of constant fusionDamian J Wallace
Network Imaging Group, Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, Spemannstraße 41, 72076 Tubingen, Germany
Nature 498:65-9. 2013..We suggest that continuously overlapping visual fields overhead would be of evolutionary benefit for predator detection by minimizing blind spots...
- Robustness of sensory-evoked excitation is increased by inhibitory inputs to distal apical tuft dendritesRobert Egger
Computational Neuroanatomy Group, Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, 72076 Tubingen, Germany Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience, 72076 Tubingen, Germany Graduate School of Neural Information Processing, University of Tubingen, 72074 Tubingen, Germany
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 112:14072-7. 2015..We present a mechanism-consistent with the theory of distal dendritic shunting-that can regulate the robustness of sensory-evoked responses in PNs without affecting response amplitude or latency. ..
- Multimodal vessel mapping for precise large area alignment of functional optical imaging data to neuroanatomical preparations in marmosetsMatthias F Valverde Salzmann
Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, Spemannstrasse 38, 72076 Tubingen, Germany
J Neurosci Methods 201:159-72. 2011..As an example, we present precise alignments of IOI responses showing orientation selectivity of primate V1 with anatomical sections stained for cytochrome-oxidase-reactivity...
- Visually evoked activity in cortical cells imaged in freely moving animalsJuergen Sawinski
Network Imaging Group, Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, Spemannstrasse 41, 72076 Tubingen, Germany
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 106:19557-62. 2009..Neurons showing preferential activation by specific stimuli were observed in freely moving animals. These results demonstrate that the multiphoton fiberscope is suitable for functional imaging in awake and freely moving animals...
