The Real-Time Experimental Control with Graphical User Interface (REC-GUI) framework can facilitate cutting-edge neuroscience research by providing precise experimental control using high-level programming environments familiar to many experimentalists.
Distinct lateral inhibitory circuits affect spiking in olfactory bulb mitral and tufted cells differently, which ultimately allows each cell type to best discriminate between similar odors in separate concentration ranges.
Targeted recordings from subcortical projection neurons in the auditory cortex reveal two cell classes with distinct signatures of sensory processing and different patterns of local and long-range connectivity.
A combination of physiological and perceptual experiments show that the responses of rod photoreceptors inhibit those of cones more than vice versa, and reveal both the site of the retinal interaction and the underlying mechanism.
Signals from primate rod photoreceptors do not exhibit the light-level-dependent routing through parallel retinal circuits observed in rodents and often invoked in interpreting psychophysical experiments.
Publication bias, in which positive results are preferentially reported by authors and published by journals, can restrict the visibility of evidence against false claims and allow such claims to be canonized inappropriately as facts.
