Visual Abstract
Resting state correlations in visual cortex reflect fluctuations of cortical arousal
Moore B, Cox MA, Dougherty K, Young MS, Maier A. (2014)

Resting state LFP coherence is compartmentalized along the laminar dimention and rapidly decreases with distance. We examined how this property changes over time as a function of arousal. Increases in arousal result in a decrease in the resting state correlations within the V1 columnar microcircuit.
