Cortical circuits underlying sensory processing
How do specific cell types contribute to sensory processing?
What role do dendrites play in sensory computations?
Neuromodulation of sensory processing and storage
How is cortical processing and storage of sensory information
modulated by ascending neuromodulatory input?
Encoding of sensory information in short-term memory
How do cortical circuits maintain sensory information in short-term memory
once the original sensory input is no longer present?
Neural basis of spatial representations
How does the neocortex represent local spatial environments?
How stable are these representations?
Predictive coding of sensory information
How does our prior experience shape our perception?
How do sensation/expectation mismatches propagate through cortex?
