Population Dynamics in Auditory Cortex: Optical Imaging



An important article, entitled “Single units and sensation: a neuron doctrine for perceptual psychology” proposed that “active high-level neurons directly and simply cause the elements of our perception” (Barlow 1972). This work articulated the conceptual framework at that time and had a great impact on research of sensory information processing. In the 1950s, single neuron recordings, the monitoring of extracellular potential changes, had become routine in the laboratory, boosting the conceptual framework of single cell analysis.
