In the slow-wave (SW) state, the vast majority of cortical neurons exhibit mostly synchronized oscillatory activity. In this study, we examined the right-left hemispheric difference in slow-wave timings in urethane-anesthetized mice. We found that interhemispheric cross-correlograms of local field potentials (LFPs) peaked asymmetrically. Double in vivo whole-cell patch-clamp recordings also revealed the interhemispheric temporal disparity of slow wave-relevant synaptic barrages. The data suggest the hemispheric laterality in the slow wave origin.
