First spikes recorded!

May 17, 2011

We are pleased to have recorded spikes from our first cortical neurons last week. We owe a lot to Santiago Jaramillo and also Petr Znamenski who helped us with all the technical hurdles. All the lab members worked together on this one and we were really pleased to see that all 8 tetrodes are working.

Watch this space to hear about what we discover! Our goal is to understand how these neurons reflect the integration of multisensory evidence during a decision-making tasks. Our subjects are experts at the task and we want to understand the neural circuitry that underlies their behavior.
