Comparison of temporal dynamics in visual and somato-sensory system

By parallel experiments in the visual and the somato-sensory system of rodents, we have achieved a comparative analysis of temporal dynamics in the two modalities. We suggest a common coding framework, which takes into account both stimulus-locked and intrinsically generated parts of the signals. We conclude that the similarities between the two modalities in encoding of related sensory information and in the build-up of representational states may be greater than previously expected. Several publications have appeared or are in preparation.
