  • A neural code $\mathcal{C}$ is a collection of binary vectors of a given length n that record the co-firing patterns of a set of neurons. Our focus is on neural codes arising from place cells, neurons that respond to geographic stimulus. In this setting, the stimulus space can be visualized as subset of $\mathbb{R}^2$ covered by a collection $\mathcal{U}$ of convex sets such that the arrangement $\mathcal{U}$ forms an Euler diagram for $\mathcal{C}$. There are some methods to determine whether… CONTINUE READING
