Sensory systems must operate over a wide range of spatial scales, and single neuron receptive field (RF) organization may contribute to the ability of a neuron to encode information about stimuli having different spatial characteristics. Here we relate the RF organization of sensory neurons to their ability to encode time-varying stimuli, using linear stimulus estimation, measures of information transfer, and more conventional analysis techniques. The electrosensory systems of weakly electric… CONTINUE READING
