SnippetTo activate ChR2, an LED light source of 460 nm (Prizmatix Opt-LED-460, Givat-Shmuel, Israel) was coupled to a bare optical fiber (200-mm diameter, 0.22 NA; ThorLabs M25L05, Newton, NJ, USA) and placed above the cortex
AbstractLocal field potentials (LFPs) are an important measure of brain activity and have been used to address various mechanistic and behavioral questions. We revealed a prominent whisker-evoked LFP signal in the olfactory bulb and investigated its physiology. This signal, dependent on barrel cortex activation and highly correlated with its local activity, represented a pure volume conduction signal that was sourced back to the activity in the ventro-lateral orbitofrontal cortex, located a few millimeters away. Thus, we suggest that special care should be taken when acquiring and interpreting LFP data.
