Simplified model of the frequency dependence of the LFP’s spatial reach

Here we employ a simplified model of the population to identify the two main effects behin the frequency dependence of the reach: 1) frequency dependence of the ‘transition distance’, that is, the distance beyond which a single cell can be approximated as a dipole, 2) frequency dependence of the mean pairwise correlation of the single neuron contributions to the LFP. The simplified model is in agreement with the full simulation results if both effects are taken into account (Figure 1B), while neither of the factors alone is sufficient.
