Neural Coding with Action Potentials - A seminar on temporal coding
Over the past decades, different strategies of information coding in biological neural networks have been proposed. The existence of so-called temporal codes is still a big controversy among neuroscientists. This seminar will investigate and discuss theories of temporal coding which assume that each single action potential may carry relevant information and that full information is encoded by coordinated neural ensembles in their precise timing of action potentials. A wealth of model studies have set the conditions for temporal codes in neural networks and outlined hypotheses that have been put to test in experimental studies. During this two-days seminar, the students will present and, together with the tutors, discuss relevant publications. The focus will be placed on experimental studies that have collected experimental evidence for the existence of temporal coding schemes in biological systems, notably in the mammalian cortex and in the central insect brain. Theoretical studies will provide insight in models and hypothesis on possible mechanisms of encoding and decoding with timed action potentials. The seminar will be organized en bloc at the end of the semester (see dates below) at a remote location outside of Berlin. This atmosphere shall offer the possibility for an intensive inter-disciplinary exchange among students and tutors.

Responsible: Martin Nawrot, Michael Schmuker
Time: 2 days full time, Dates: Feb 14th/15th (arrive 13th), 2009
