The speed with which neurones in the monkey temporal lobe can respond selectively to the presence of a face implies that processing may be possible using only one spike per neurone, a finding that is problematic for conventional rate coding models that need at least two spikes to estimate interspike interval. One way of avoiding this problem uses the fact that integrate-and-fire neurones will tend to fire at different times, with the most strongly activated neurones firing first (Thorpe, 1990… CONTINUE READING
