The cerebral cortex is composed of many distinct regions, each of them engaged in specific cortical functions, such as visual, auditory, somatosensory, or motor processing. These cortical activities are fundamental for human activities, however the functional architecture and activity patterns of cortical microcircuits are still unknown. Our laboratory is elucidating the fundamental rules that govern cortical microcircuits, such as cell diversity and functional connectivity usingmodern physiological, anatomical and molecular methods.
