A Dendritic Mechanism for Decoding Traveling Waves: Principles and Applications to Motor Cortex
(A) Spatial profiles of the dendritic filter. (B) Spatial contours of the dendritic filter. (C) Preferred cortical oscillation pattern for this dendritic filter. (D) Orthogonal oscillation pattern. (E) Time course of the neural response to the preferred cortical pattern. Bottom trace (red) is the dendritic current. Top trace (black) is the somatic membrane potential. Light gray traces show the responses of four other PTNs located at random positions on the same cortical pattern. (F) Time course of neural response to the orthogonal pattern. Panels E and F have the same scales.
