Analysis of receptive fields in layer II/III and IV. A topographic map of the 25 whisker
array used for receptive field characterization is shown in (a) as they appear on right
snout. (b), Positioning of an 8 electrode extracellular recording array on the surface of
the barrel cortex with the same topographic map superimposed on the surface. Note that
the whisker map is reversed along the vertical and horizontal axis between the periphery
and the contralateral barrel cortex. The orientation of each electrode is shown relative to
the functional peaks and 2.5 x 10 -4 functional borders of whisker C2 (blue), B2 (green)
or C3 (purple) for a representative SC (c) and NH (d) rat obtained immediately prior to
electrophysiological recording. Scale bar = 1 mm. (e), Evoked response magnitude
obtained from stimulation of each of the 25 whiskers in layer II/III and layer IV of the
same SC and NH rat is mapped onto a pseduocolor scale and topographically represented
according to the relative position of the whisker within the 25 whisker array on the
contralateral face. A non-linear probability scale for firing rate was used to highlight
response rates between 2 and 20 spikes/sec. Significant responses included in the
receptive field are enclosed in a blue outline. The column of numbers shown on the left
indicates the correspondence between each receptive field measurement and the electrode
position in the cortex.
