Abstract

Hemberger et al. examine the actions of single neurons on surrounding networks in reptilian cortex. Cortical pyramidal neurons can initiate neuronal sequences reminiscent of hypothesized “synfire chains,” suggesting the existence of a landscape of preferred paths for cortical information flow.
