Odour representation in the awake mouse and a scalable approach to neural recordings in vivo
Professor Schafer from the Francis Crick Institute will be speaking on how wakefulness influences neuronal activity in the olfactory system of mice. His research group has recently published results that a previously overlooked subpopulation of mitral/tufted cells in the mouse brain can strongly influence the olfactory bulb, even though whole-cell recordings found a third of these cells to be ‘silent’.
