Descriptif

Conférence donnée par Miguel Maravall dans le cadre du "Colloquium de l'Institut d'Etude de la Cognition".

Rodents use their whiskers to perform demanding sensory discrimination tasks. Identifying an object's position or texture requires the system to encode temporal patterns of whisker motion fluctuations with high precision. Accordingly, neurons in the somatosensory thalamus and cortex are not just sensitive to spatial stimulus structure -e.g., motion of particular whiskers or in particular directions-, but also have clear feature selectivity (receptive fields) in the temporal domain. Here I will describe recent work in search of the principles governing this feature selectivity.
