The analysis of stimulus/response patterns using information theoretic approaches requires the full probability distribution of stimuli and response. Recent progress in using information-based tools to understand circuit function has advanced understanding of neural coding at the single cell and population level. In advances over traditional reverse correlation approaches, the determination of receptive fields using information as a metric has allowed novel insights into stimulus representation… CONTINUE READING
