About this Research Topic
Contributions to this Research Topic should advance statistical modeling of neural populations. Questions of particular interest include:
1. What classes of statistical methods are most useful for modeling population activity?
2. What are the main limitations of current approaches, and what can be done to overcome them?
3. How can statistical methods be used to empirically test existing models of (probabilistic) population coding?
4. What role can statistical methods play in formulating novel hypotheses about the principles of information processing in neural populations?
This Research Topic is connected to a one day workshop at the Computational Neuroscience Meeting 2009 in Berlin (http://www.cnsorg.org/2009/workshops.shtml and
