1. What is coarse coding?

  • Each neuron represents a range of possible input values
  • Information about the stimulus is carried in the rate of firing
  • Information about the stimulus is carried in the precise timing of individual spikes
  • The same neuron can be used to detect the presence of a stimuli based on its similarity to a prototypical representation
