Abstract
Vibrissal somatosensory cortex (vS1) and vibrissal motor cortex (vM1) are the two key structures involved in somatosensation in rodents. Although we know the vertical and horizontal organizational principles of vS1, very little is known about the organizational principles of vM1 at single cell level. Using in vivo cell attached recording, biocytin filling and semi-automatic reconstruction pipeline; we investigated electrophysiological properties and morphological characteristics of motor cortex neurons. We found substantial similarities between these two areas, indicating that both cortices follow similar organizational principles.
