Recordings from cat area 17 during gamma oscillations reveal a positive correlation between each unit's orientation selectivity, strength of oscillations, and propensity towards synchronisation with other units, with ‘synchronisation hubs’ denoting the most promiscuous synchronisers. Using a computational model, we demonstrate that variations in the strength of rhythmic inhibitory inputs can account for the correlations between these three properties and the formation of synchronisation hubs.
