Dynamics of Neuronal Activity in the Cortical Column during Behavior: Both Neuron Type and Layers Matter

Neuron. 2019 Oct 23;104(2):186-188. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2019.10.005.


In this issue of Neuron, Yu et al. (2019) reveal the activity of excitatory cells and GABAergic inhibitory interneurons throughout the neocortical column during active sensation. The authors utilized a combination of spike waveform analysis and genetic tools to identify cell types, demonstrating their distinct patterns of recruitment during behavior.
