2. What characterises the 'detector' analogy?
- An individual neuron intergrates information from a variety of sources and sends a signal representing the degree to which the inputs match some type of pattern
- Each neuron codes for a specific pattern with a 'detection threshold'
- Single neurons code for specific individual phenomena e.g there is a neuron that selectively codes for faces, another for dogs...
- An individual neuron 'detects' information in its receptive field and broadcasts to other single neurons
3. What does a tuning curve represent?
- The typical L shaped trough pattern of neural responses
- The typical onset-offset response patterns of neurons
- The typical graded response patterns of neurons
- The typical U shaped curve of neural response patterns
4. Is there ambiguity in bell shaped tuning curves?
- Yes, the same firing rate can reflect different properties of the stimulus
- No, the same firing rate always reflects the same property of the stimulus
5. From where do neurons receive input?
