Characterization of Neural Responses with Stochastic Stimuli

  title={Characterization of Neural Responses with Stochastic Stimuli},
  author={Eero P. Simoncelli and Liam Paninski and Jonathan W. Pillow and Odelia Schwartz}
A fundamental goal of sensory systems neuroscience is the characterization of the functional relationship between environmental stimuli and neural response. The purpose of such a characterization is to elucidate the computation being performed by the system. Qualitatively, this notion is exemplified by the concept of the “receptive field”, a quasi-linear description of a neuron’s response properties that has dominated sensory neuroscience for the past 50 years. Receptive field properties are… CONTINUE READING
