Modelling divisive inhibition in the primary visual cortex from optogenetic circuit mapping data

Abstract:

Recurrent networks are abundant in the neocortex and are recognised as a means of amplifying feedforward thalamic sensory inputs. However, when operating at high gain, which is necessary for this signal amplification, the standard recurrent network firing rate model suffers from increased reaction times to rapidly changing stimuli. Divisive inhibition has been proposed as a means of bypassing this coupling of system gain and time constant. In my thesis I focus on the importance of inhibiti...
