 Project objective

Spatial navigation requires the integration of visual and vestibular inputs to build a representation of space. Connectivity studies have shown that the secondary visual cortex (V2) of mice receives bottom-up inputs from primary visual cortex and anterior thalamus, conveying respectively visual and vestibular information, and feedback top-down inputs from the retrosplenial cortex. The aims of this project are to determine the visual and vestibular tuning of layer 5 pyramidal neurons in V2, how these inputs are recruited and interact when the mouse is engaged in a spatial navigation task, and how they are modulated by retrosplenial inputs. This will be accomplished using a combination of population calcium imaging or whole-cell patch-clamp recordings of layer 5 neurons, coupled with sensory stimulation and optogenetic activation or inhibition of sensory or top-down inputs and behavioural experiments.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "VESTIBVIS" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email (fabio@fabiodisconzi.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
