Cross-modal intracortical dynamics and plasticity during learning in virtual reality

in Collaboration with Prof. Thomas Knöpfel, Imperial College London, UK

Representations in the cortex are highly dynamic and depend on the actual cortical state bound to task specificity within multi-dimensional context. Our approach rests on the hypothesis that repetitive use leaves persistent traces in adult cortical networks that can be visualized as spatial or spatiotemporal patterns using wide field optical imaging methods. To measure complex cortical dynamics across multiple brain areas simultaneously we will exploit recent developments of mouse models that express voltage indicators intrinsically.
