Spike train variability is of fundamental importance for understanding how information is encoded and processed in the nervous system. Most studies in this area have focused on short-term variability, as characterized by the coefficient of variation of the interspike interval distribution. Here we discuss the importance of extending the analysis of spike train variability to longer time scales that span multiple interspike intervals. Recent experimental and modeling studies of probability… CONTINUE READING
