Previous studies have shown that sensory neurons that are the most informative of the stimulus tend to be the best correlated with the subject's perceptual decision. We wanted to know whether this relationship might also apply to short time segments of a neuron's response. We asked whether spikes that conveyed more information about a motion stimulus were also more tightly linked to the perceptual behavior. We examined single-neuron activity in middle temporal (MT) area while monkeys performed… CONTINUE READING
