- Combined optogenetic perturbation and voltage imaging enables high-resolution mapping of bioelectrical dynamics in intact tissues. I will describe application to Layer 1 of the mouse barrel cortex. We developed techniques to distinguish the separate contributions of excitatory and inhibitory synaptic inputs to membrane potential. Using these tools, we deciphered how the sensory-evoked responses emerged from local network dynamics.
