Origin and Propagation of Induced Slow Waves (image) Technical University of Munich (TUM) Share Print E-Mail Caption A brief pulse of light delivered to a local cluster of neurons through an optical fiber can induce a wave of neuronal activity that spreads across the entire cortex. Illustrated here using a computer model of the mouse brain, the actual experiment is performed on the intact brain of a live mouse under anesthesia.
