Modulation of network dynamics by thalamic inputs in vivo . A-B, Orientation of the recording site and areas of thalamic lesions plotted on an atlas. C, Typical field potential recording traces of sham group, induced seizures and after medial thalamic lesion. D, Color map of isopotential, 2D-CSD, and correlation coefficient. The reference electrode of the correlation coefficient is marked with a green rectangle. E, Comparison of average discharge. F-G, Bar chart of the 2D-CSD and correlation coefficient. H-I, Avalanche size and lifetime distribution shown in a solid line. J, The α value increased during induced seizure activity, and medial thalamic lesion increased the α value further. Scale bar = 1 mm in A and B. *p < 0.01.
