    Stimulus background influences phase invariant coding by correlated neural activity

    Michael G Metzen, Maurice J Chacron
    Building on previous work (Metzen et al., 2016), a combination of neurophysiological and behavioral approaches reveals that changes in the background strongly impacts invariant coding and perception of behaviourally relevant signals.

    Feedback optimizes neural coding and perception of natural stimuli

    Chengjie G Huang et al.
    Neurophysiological and behavioral approaches reveal how coordinated input from descending pathways shapes the tuning properties of electrosensory neurons in order to optimize coding of natural stimuli through temporal whitening.

    Neural variability determines coding strategies for natural self-motion in macaque monkeys

    Isabelle Mackrous et al.
    Whether central vestibular neurons implement faithful stimulus encoding for the vestibulo-occular reflex or optimized coding via temporal whitening for other vestibular functions is determined by neural variability.

    Neuronal variability and tuning are balanced to optimize naturalistic self-motion coding in primate vestibular pathways

    Diana E Mitchell et al.
    A match between neuronal variability and tuning enables optimized coding of natural self-motion in early vestibular pathways.

    Neural oscillations as a signature of efficient coding in the presence of synaptic delays

    Matthew Chalk et al.
    Neural oscillations are a necessary consequence of efficient coding of sensory signals by a spiking neural network, limited by synaptic delays and noise.

    Origins and functional consequences of somatic mitochondrial DNA mutations in human cancer

    Young Seok Ju et al.
    Identifying 1,907 mitochondrial somatic mutations from 1,675 tumor tissues provides new insights into the causes and effects of the mitochondrial genome mutations found in human cancers.

    Inferring synaptic inputs from spikes with a conductance-based neural encoding model

    Kenneth W Latimer et al.
    The conductance-based encoding model creates a new bridge between statistical models and biophysical models of neurons, and infers visually-evoked excitatory and inhibitory synaptic conductances from spike trains in macaque retina.

    Efficient coding of natural scene statistics predicts discrimination thresholds for grayscale textures

    Tiberiu Tesileanu et al.
    An optimization principle allows natural-image data to predict human sensitivity to synthetic, un-natural textures with multiple gray levels.

    Decoding neural responses to temporal cues for sound localization

    Dan FM Goodman et al.
    Computer simulations of interaural time difference decoders show that heterogeneous tuning of binaural neurons leads to accurate sound localization in natural environments.

    Stable and dynamic representations of value in the prefrontal cortex

    Pierre Enel et al.
    The prefrontal cortex encodes both stable and dynamic representations of expected value, providing mechanisms to support robust as well as flexible access to value information during temporal delays.
