" ... Using both multicompartment Hodgkin-Huxley-type simulations and electrophysiological recordings in rodent brain slices, we find that increasing or decreasing the postsynaptic conductance of the set of thalamocortical inputs to one L4SS (Layer 4 Spiny Stellate) cell decreases the energy efficiency of information transmission from a single thalamocortical input. ..."
