Neural dynamics leading to optimized information transfer

Maurice J Chacron
Neural information processing by trains of action potentials is studied in the context of weakly electric fish electroreceptor neurons. A simple but accurate dynamical model for the firing activity of these neurons is presented and compared with experimental results. Dynamical analysis of the model reveals the mechanism by which it reproduces features present in experimental data, such as relative refractoriness and bursting behaviour. Approximations necessary for application of information theory to neural spike trains are...
