In visual cortex, information about features such as edges or textures with particular orientations must be integrated to recognize a visual scene or object. In principle, the architecture of rodent cortex would enable local circuits to integrate sensory information — however, whether feature integration occurs in rodent primary sensory areas has not been examined directly. Our results show that a broad range of pattern integration already takes place at the level of V1.

How connectivity rules affect cortical behaviour


Analytical examination of eigenvalue spectra

An example eigenvalue spectrum for a sparse network.

How does the behaviour and stability of a neuronal network depend on the connectivity rules used to build it? A common approach is to build many stochastic instances of a network, tweak the parameters, simulate and analyse, and then try to derive an impression about stability. We instead used an analytical approach, to directly relate connectivity rules and parameters to bounds on stability.
