BeschreibungWhat does it mean to say that a certain set of spikes is the right answerto a computational problem? In what sense does a spike train convey informationabout the sensory world? Spikes begins by providing precise formulations of theseand related questions about the representation of sensory signals in neural spiketrains. The answers to these questions are then pursued in experiments on sensoryneurons.Intended for neurobiologists with an interest in mathematical analysis ofneural data as well as the growing number of physicists and mathematiciansinterested in information processing by "real" nervous systems, Spikes provides aself-contained review of relevant concepts in information theory and statisticaldecision theory.
Pressestimmen"A joy to read... This book will undoubtedly become a classic. Theideas presented in it have already begun (in no small part through thework of the authors) to reshape our views of the neural code. Thisbook will make them accessible to a much wider audience." Anthony Zador , Science "Spikes is a really wonderful book. The particulartheory about how the brain works that informs the presentation, and thusdetermines how neural coding is to be described, is clearly thought throughand the arguments are attractively and intelligently presented." Charles F. Stevens, The Salk Institute
