"Synaptic architecture and functional connectivity of ferret visual cortex"

Benjamin Scholl, University of Colorado School of Medicine


Neocortical neurons receive myriad excitatory inputs. To study their structural and functional properties we primarily use in vivo two-photon calcium imaging of populations of dendritic spines, the recipients of excitatory synaptic inputs. Our work has uncovered functional diversity, functional weight distribution, and intriguing organization of subcellular organelles. Moving forward, we aim to map the functional connectivity of these circuits and their development with two-photon optogenetics.
