In various regions of the brain, neurons discriminate sensory stimuli by decreasing the similarity between ambiguous input patterns. Here we examine whether this process of pattern separation may drive the rapid discrimination of visual motion stimuli in the lateral intraparietal area (LIP). Starting with a simple mean-rate population model that captures(More)

In recent years, there has been a lot of progress about understanding the way decisions are carried out in the brain. Neurons accumulate both evidence and noise over time, by a summation of spikes, in favor of a specific choice. It remains unclear, however, what are the(More)
