Is There a Neural Code?

  title={Is There a Neural Code?},
  author={Jos J. Eggermont},
  journal={Neuroscience & Biobehavioral Reviews},
Rate coding and temporal coding are two extremes of the neural coding process. The concept of a stationary state corresponds to the information processing approach that views the brain as a decision maker, adopts rate coding as its main strategy and endorses the single- or few neuron approach. If information derived from sensory stimulation is used to continuously update the brain's internal representation of the world, then neural codes may change with time through learning. As a consequence… CONTINUE READING
