2. In a raster plot, what does a row represent?

  • How many spikes fired in a given period
  • An experimental trial
  • Time
  • A spike

3. 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

4. How is the action potential propogated through the cell?

  • Axon
  • Dendrite
  • Nucleus
  • Myelin

5. Does firing rate/ timing of action potentials carry information?

  • Yes, each actions potentials rate and timing reflects the neurons activity
  • No, each action potential has approximately the same firing rate and timing
