Uncovering the circuit mechanisms that shape contextual phenomena  Neurons in visual cortex are sensitive to context. Neural responses to stimuli presented within their classical receptive fields (CRFs) are modulated by the presence of other stimuli – in their CRF and their surrounding extra-classical receptive field (eCRF). While CRF and eCRF phenomena have been extensively studied […]

Severe issues and solutions for the response inhibition data from the ABCD study and beyond   The stop-signal paradigm, a primary paradigm for measuring response inhibition, rests on the theoretical foundations of race models, which assumes independence between the overt go process and the inhibitory stop process. We show severe violations of independence across various […]
