Use of the time variable by the brain

Authors: Lestienne, Rémy

The computational function of the neuronal discharge rates in the processing of information by the brain today seems improbable, even though the principle of psychoneural identity has led to remarkable practical results. Coincidence detection, coherent oscillations of neural territories, phase locking and/or phase advances in neuronal timing suggest the use by the brain of a precise time coding. This code, however, perhaps do not aim at a precise description of the environment, but rather at the statistical characterization of the causes of the received stimulations, taking into account the wealth of acquired knowledge, in a typically Bayesian processing of information.
