New Light on Gamma Oscillations

Neuron. 2017 Jan 18;93(2):247-249. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2017.01.003.


Two papers in this issue of Neuron by Saleem et al. (2017) and Storchi et al. (2017) show that increases in background light intensity trigger proportional increases in narrowband gamma oscillations with a peak at 60 Hz in retina, lateral geniculate, and primary visual cortex of the mouse visual system.
