Schematic Representation of the Functional Organization of Inhibitory Neurons (image) Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience Share Print E-Mail Caption Inhibitory interneurons in the ferret are orientation tuned and engage in orientation-specific networks with excitatory neurons. In contrast, inhibitory neurons in the mouse are not orientation selective and are instead local non-specific integrators of excitatory activity.
