Workshop on Methods of Information Theory in Computational Neuroscience

Using lossy representations to find the neural code?

One of the major questions in neuroscience centers around definition and extraction of the neural code. I will talk about this problem in the abstract, drawing on rate-distortion theory (a less-used branch of information theory) to define the neural code, and will then describe a new method that may allow for practical extraction of the neural code from data.
