Check out one of the latest videos from our friends and collaborators over at the Allen Institute for Brain Science. We have helpfully fast forwarded to the part that talks about us, but we also recommend watching the entire video. Enjoy!
It’s time once again to visit the mouse visual cortex, this time with Mouse-V1-09. Give it a try and don’t forget to say hello in chat (currently not available for full-screen fans just yet).
Now that we’re wrapping up work on Mouse-V1-07, we’re taking the opportunity to introduce your next challenge. As you may have guessed from the title, Mouse-V1-08 is another mouse primary visual cortex neuron. Get started now and when you’re ready for a quick break, go here about the “Topography and Areal Organization of Mouse Visual Cortex” via this 2014 Journal of Neuroscience article. Enjoy!
Continuing our series of primary visual cortex neurons from mice, we are pleased to introduce another challenge for our community: Mouse-V1-07. Did you know in mice, the primary visual cortex is used for the detection of both increments and decrements in contrast as well as changes in orientation? There’s a study on it you can read here.
