PMID-18336081 Adaptive integration in the visual cortex by depressing recurrent cortical circuits.

  • Mainly focused on the experimental observation that decreasing contrast increases latency to both behavioral and neural response (latter in the later visual areas..)
  • Idea is that synaptic depression in recurrent cortical connections mediates this 'adaptive integration' time-constant to maintain reliability.
  • Model also explains persistent activity after a flashed stimulus.
  • No plasticity or learning, though.
  • Rather elegant and well explained.
