About the cover

October 2013 Volume 16 No 10

Murphy and colleagues use voltage-sensitive dye imaging in the cortex of anesthetized and awake mice to show that spontaneous activity patterns contain motifs similar to those evoked by sensory stimulation. These motifs are also seen following optogenetic activation of the cortex and they correlate with structural connectivity. Cover design based on an image by Mostafa Mohsenvand.
