Abstract:


In sensory cortices, information about external stimuli is conveyed by collective neural activities. Small neural populations often express perceptual sensitivity of psychophysical observers, suggesting that stimulus properties are redundantly coded by correlated neurons. This implies the existence of 'information-limiting' structures in noise correlations, which limit information as the population size increases. However, the existence of such correl ...
