The signal encoded by a sensory neuron is usually characterized as the cell's average response to repeated presentations of a stimulus. However, each stimulus presentation elicits a slightly different response. This response variability may obscure the signal represented by neural activity, but it might also be an important aspect of a neuron's message and in some instances may even serve useful function. Here we present evidence that response variability (noise) in primate retinal ganglion… CONTINUE READING
