A mechanistic link from GABA to cortical architecture and perception

Abstract:

Understanding the organisation of the human cortex and its relation to the performance of distinct functions are fundamental questions in neuroscience. The primary sensory cortices display topographic organization, whereby receptive fields follow a characteristic pattern, from tonotopy, to retinotopy, to somatotopy [1]. GABAergic signaling is vital to the maintenance of cortical receptive fields [2], however it is unclear how this fine-grain inhibition relates to measurable patterns of percep...
