    UP-DOWN cortical dynamics reflect state transitions in a bistable network

    Daniel Jercog et al.
    Population cortical recordings and computational network modeling support a novel mechanism underlying spontaneous UP-DOWN dynamics consisting on non-rhythmic transitions between a silent attractor and a low-rate inhibition-stabilized attractor.

    VIP interneurons in mouse primary visual cortex selectively enhance responses to weak but specific stimuli

    Daniel J Millman et al.
    Measurements of visual response to motion of different contrasts along with network modeling reveals a microcircuit in superficial layers of cortex that regulates the gain regime.
