    • A computational model of cuneothalamic projection neurons 

      Sánchez Vila, Eduardo; Barro Ameneiro, Senén; Mariño Alfonso, Xurxo; Canedo Lamas, Antonio (Taylor and Francis, 2003)
      The dorsal column nuclei, cuneatus and gracilis, play a fundamental role in the processing and integration of somesthetic ascending information. Intracellular and patch-clamp recordings obtained in cat in vivo have shown ...
    • A realistic computational model of the local circuitry of the cuneate nucleus 

      Sánchez Vila, Eduardo; Barro Ameneiro, Senén; Mariño Alfonso, Xurxo; Canedo Lamas, Antonio (Springer, 2001)
      Intracellular recordings obtained under cutaneous and lemniscal stimulation show that the afferent fibers can establish excitatory and inhibitory synaptic connections with cuneothalamic neurons [5]. In addition, distinct ...
    • Cortical modulation of dorsal column nuclei: a computational study 

      Sánchez Vila, Eduardo; Barro Ameneiro, Senén; Mariño Alfonso, Xurxo; Canedo Lamas, Antonio (Springer, 2006-04-22)
      [Abstract] We present a computational study aimed at exploring the sensorimotor cortex modulation of the behaviour of dorsal column nuclei, specifically the impact of synaptic parameters, during both sleep and waking ...
    • Modelling the circuitry of the cuneate nucleus 

      Sánchez Vila, Eduardo; Barro Ameneiro, Senén; Mariño Alfonso, Xurxo; Canedo Lamas, Antonio; Vázquez Muñíz, Pablo José (Springer, 1999)
      Experimental data recorded in cat "in vivo" offer a new picture of the cuneate nucleus. Clasically definied as a simple relay station, the cuneate nucleus is currently seen as a fundamental stage in somatosensory information ...
    • Sleep and wakefulness in the cuneate nucleus: a computational study 

      Sánchez Vila, Eduardo; Barro Ameneiro, Senén; Mariño Alfonso, Xurxo; Canedo Lamas, Antonio (Springer, 2003)
      We present a computational study about the influence of the sensorimotor cortex on the processing of the cuneate nucleus during sleep as well as wakefulness. Realistic computational models were developed supported by ...
    • The role of glyclinergic interneurons in the dorsal column nuclei 

      Sánchez Vila, Eduardo; Aguilar Fernández, Jaime; Rivadulla, Casto; Canedo Lamas, Antonio (Elsevier, 2004-03-12)
      [Abstract] The aim of this paper is to provide new insights about the circuitry and the role of the dorsal column nuclei (DCN) in processing somatosensory information. The presence of glycinergic cells, a second type of ...
