Four top reasons why mutual information does not assess neural information processing
Mutual information between stimulus and response has been advocated as an information theoretic measure of a neural system's capability to process information. Once calculated, the result is a single number that supposedly ...
Dialogue Concerning Neural Coding and Information Theory
The relations between information theory and neural coding are discussed by two researchers, one knowledgeable in information theory, the other in neuroscience. The classic information-theoretic notions of entropy, mutual ...
Examining methods for estimating mutual information in spiking neural systems
Mutual information enjoys wide use in the computational neuroscience community for analyzing spiking neural systems. Its direct calculation is difficult because estimating the joint stimulus-response distribution requires ...
