The in format ion channel capaci ty of a model neuron wi th a fixed re f rac tory per iod ~ has been calcula ted for op t imum cont inuous t ime in te rva l coding. Two types of noise pe r tu rba t ions have been considered, a Gauss ian p robab i l i ty d i s t r ibu t ion and a rec tangula r d is t r ibut ion of the t ime of occurrence of the response to a s t imulus . Laborato ry measurements indica te a Gauss ian d i s t r ibu t ion wi th a s t anda rd devia t ion of la tency ~, of abou t 5… CONTINUE READING
