When are microcircuits well-modeled by maximum entropy methods?

Abstract

Recent experiments in retina and cortex have demonstrated that pairwise maximum entropy (PME) methods can approximate observed spiking patterns to a high degree of accuracy [1,2]. In this paper we examine the relationship between network architecture, statistics of transmitted signals, and the order of correlation needed to explain network output in a class… (More)
