Information-Theoretic analysis of Neural Activity: Review
Approaches to information-theoretic analysis of neural activity
Biological Theory 1, 302-316 (2006)
Understanding how neurons represent, process, and manipulate
information is one of the main goals of neuroscience.
These issues are fundamentally abstract, and information theory
plays a key role in formalizing and addressing them. However,
application of information theory to experimental data is
fraught with many challenges. Meeting these challenges has
led to a variety of innovative analytical techniques, with complementary
domains of applicability, assumptions, and goals.
