Henrie, J. Andrew and Robert Shapley. LFP power spectra in V1 cortex:
the graded effect of stimulus contrast. J Neurophysiol 94: 479490, 2005.
First published February 9, 2005; doi:10.1152/jn.00919.2004. We
recorded local field potentials (LFPs) and single-unit activity simul-
taneously in the macaque primary visual cortex (V1) and studied their
responses to drifting sinusoidal gratings that were chosen to be
"optimal" for the single units. Over all stimulus conditions, the LFP
spectra have much greater power in the low-frequency band ( 10 Hz)
than higher frequencies and can be described as "1/f." Analysis of the
total power limited to the low, gamma (2590 Hz), or broad (8240
Hz) frequency bands of the LFP as a function of stimulus contrast
indicates that the LFP power gradually increases with stimulus
strength across a wide band in a manner roughly comparable to the
increase in the simultaneously recorded spike activity. However, the
low-frequency band power remains approximately constant across all
stimulus contrasts. More specifically the gamma-band LFP power
