This chapter considers a new classification, starting with glutamatergic inputs, and explore what insights this provides concerning circuits in thalamus and cortex. The chapter begins this classification with a distinction between drivers and modulators; this classification was originally based on thalamic relays for which the properties of the synapses and their function in the relay of information were known.

Keywords:   glutamatergic imputs, thalamus, cortex, drivers, modulators, synapses, classification
