- The mammalian visual system, from retina to neocortex, has been extensively studied at both anatomical and functional levels. Anatomy indicates this system is organized hierarchically, but direct observation of cellular-level functional interactions across multiple levels of this hierarchy is lacking, partially due to the challenge of simultaneously recording activity across numerous regions. We here describe a large, open dataset, part of the Allen Brain Observatory, that surveys spiking from tens of thousands of units in six cortical and two thalamic regions in the mouse responding to a battery of visual stimuli. Using spike cross-correlation analysis, we reveal that the organization of inter-area functional connectivity during visual stimulation mirrors the anatomical hierarchy from the Allen Mouse Brain Connectivity Atlas. Supporting the role of this hierarchy in visual processing, we find that classical hierarchical measures, including response latency, receptive field size, phase-locking to a drifting grating stimulus, and response decay timescale are all correlated with the hierarchy. Moreover, recordings during a visual task reveal that the correlation between neural activity and behavioral choice increases along the hierarchy.
- bioRxiv paper related to my talk but also to our massive (100,000 recorded units) BrainObservatory database that we've recorded throughout the mouse brain and that we've used to make a number of discoveries (now under 2nd stage review). All of these neurons, aligned to the high-dimensional spatial 3-D brain-wide coordinate system, the CCFv3, can be accessed here via our SDK, including tutorials, white-papers and so on.
- a short cheat-sheet for all of this data (PDF). Note that the vast majority of these neurons and their responses have not been analyzed, so there is much to discover here.
