This paper considers the applicability of two psychophysical theories, neural counting and neural timing, to visual detection experiments. Neural counting postulates that the number of events occurring on a set of hypothetical sensory channels within a fixed period of time is the relevant code to describe the detection of a stimulus. Alternatively, neural timing suggests that the amount of time before a fixed number of events occurs on each of the hypothetical channels is the relevant code… CONTINUE READING
