Basal forebrain activation enhances cortical coding of natural scenes
Michael Goard and Yang Dan
The nucleus basalis is thought to regulate arousal and attention via
release of acetylcholine in the cortex. Here the authors report that
nucleus basalis stimulation in rats results in a decorrelation between
visual cortical neurons as a result of activation of cortical muscarinic
receptors and an increase in the reliability of responses to natural
scenes as a result of more distributed changes along the visual pathway.

Functional consequences of animal-to-animal variation in circuit
Jean-Marc Goaillard, Adam L Taylor, David J Schulz and Eve Marder
The authors found considerable preparation-to-preparation variability
in the strength of two identified synapses, the amplitude of a
modulator-evoked current and the expression of six ion channel
genes in the pyloric circuit of the crab stomatogastric ganglion.
These parameters correlated with circuit performance. Circuits produced
similar outputs because of compensatory and coordinated changes among
the parameters.
