Abstract: Neural coding describes the encoding of input signals in neuronal firing patterns. The speaker will discuss a range of methods for analyzing and describing coding, and show some examples from different sensory systems. The coding properties of neural systems are not fixed in time, but vary with stimulus conditions. The speaker will give some examples of adaptation and show that adaptation can help neural systems to optimize the information that they convey about their inputs.
