The representational capacity of the distributed encoding of information provided by populations of neurons in primate temporal visual cortex

Abstract:

It has been shown that it is possible to read, from the firing rates of just a small population of neurons, the code that is used in the macaque temporal lobe visual cortex to distinguish between different faces being looked at. To analyse the information provided by populations of single neurons in the primate temporal cortical visual areas, the responses of a population of 14 neurons to 20 visual stimuli were analysed in a macaque performing a visual fixation task. The population of neur...
