The Dead Sea Scrolls After Fifty Years: A Comprehensive Assessment

This quantity is the second one in a chain released to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the invention of the 1st scrolls at Qumran. The two-volume set incorporates a entire variety of articles overlaying themes which are archaeological, historic, literary, sociological, or theological in personality. because the discovery of the 1st scrolls in 1947 an huge variety of experiences were released.

This was done by counting the fraction of neurophysiological recording sites where the activity obeyed the same relations as found in the BOLD signal (noise > natural and gratings > natural). This comparison was performed separately for each LFP frequency band and MUA. For details see (Kayser et al. 2004) C. Kayser and N. K. Logothetis 25 0 3 0 0 Mua range (500-3'000 Hz) 50 100 LFP frequency band [Hz] Site by site comparison Percentage recording sites 100 Noise > Natural 50 Gratings > Natural 0 0 100 200 Physiology frequency range firing rates, contrasting the above result from visual cortex.

However, in full agreement with the above, visual modulation was well evident at the level of field potentials recorded in auditory cortex, again demonstrating a closer correspondence of the BOLD signal with field potentials than with firing rates (Kayser et al. 2008). 6 Conclusions The hemodynamic responses characterized by functional imaging better reflect the aggregate synaptic activity and local processing that is characterized by the LFPs, rather than providing information about the typical firing rates in the same region.
