Analysis of Encoding of Stimulus Separation in Ensembles of Muscle Afferents
In sensory physiology there have been two main theories relating to the processing of afferent information. These are the “labelled line” theory and the “ensemble coding” theory (cf. Ray & Doetsch, 1990a). The labelled line theory concentrates on the response properties of single receptors, while the ensemble coding theory places the emphasis on encoding in a neuronal population rather than by individual receptors or afferents (Erickson, 1968; Ray & Doetsch, 1990b).
