Outline

Patterns of synaptic connections in the visual system dictate the receptive field properties of individual neurons and ultimately determine the quality of visual perception. Understanding the mechanisms by which neural circuits process information requires a novel method that makes it possible to resolve connectivity with high resolution, to correlate connectivity with function, and to manipulate the activity of defined circuit components. The major goal of the proposed research is to understand the role of fine-scale subnetworks that have a reciprocal connection and share common inputs in the intact brain.
