Abstract

Neurons in neocortical layer 1 (L1) are thought to regulate attentional processes through integration of longrange inputs and disinhibitory effects on the underlying cortex. A new study combines genetically targeted voltage imaging and optogenetics to elucidate the input-output transformations of the L1 network in the mouse somatosensory cortex, revealing unique features of sensory-evoked dynamics in L1 neurons.
