Persistent neural activity: prevalence and mechanisms

Major, Guy ORCID: and Tank, David 2004. Persistent neural activity: prevalence and mechanisms. Current Opinion in Neurobiology 14 (6) , pp. 675-684. 10.1016/j.conb.2004.10.017

Persistent neural activity refers to a sustained change in action potential discharge that long outlasts a stimulus. It is found in a diverse set of brain regions and organisms and several in vitro systems, suggesting that it can be considered a universal form of circuit dynamics that can be used as a mechanism for short-term storage and accumulation of sensory or motor information. Both single cell and network mechanisms are likely to co-operate in generating persistent activity in many brain areas.
