Information coding using neuronal spikes

Research report (imported) 2017 - Max Planck Institute for Brain Research

Abteilung Theory of Neural Dynamics
Neurons communicate by short electric pulses, the so-called action potentials or spikes. In order to fully understand cognitive functions, knowledge about how spikes encode information is necessary. The research group found that pairwise spike correlations and their linear components shape the coding of information. Linear response functions are one of the most versatile concepts and have been used to understand many neuroscientific topics, though their validity regime is not unlimited.
