This chapter shows that the spontaneous firing of single neurons is tightly linked to the cortical networks in which they are embedded. The idea of a network is a central concept in theoretical brain research and it is now finally possible to directly visualize the cortical networks and their states in action, at high spatiotemporal resolution.

Keywords:   brain, neurons, cortical networks, brain research, high spatiotemporal resolution
