Abstract: Phase coherence between oscillating areas of cortex is associated with attention and information transmission. A growing literature is devoted to how this might work. We use a rate model of noise-driven quasi-cycle oscillators to build a neural circuit representing cortical-pulvinar interactions. Modelling in terms of rates or densities rather than firing allows computation of a result about optimal phase relationships. This is joint work with Lawrence Ward of the UBC Psychology Department.
