A Dendritic Mechanism for Decoding Traveling Waves: Principles and Applications to Motor Cortex
(A) Tuning curve of the PTN dendritic compartment. The amplitude of the dendritic response current (vertical axis) is modulated by the orientation of the cortical wave pattern (horizontal axis). Heavy black line indicates the mean amplitude of the dendritic response for any given wave orientation. Shaded region indicates the 90% confidence interval. The large variation is due to local defects in the wave pattern. (B) The likelihood of the soma responding at each of the dominant firing rates. (C) Net firing rates of a population of neurons in response to wave orientation.
