Abstract

We have analytically and numerically solved the mutual information expression for a quantitative model of the Schaffer collateral projections from the CA3 to the CA1 pyramidal cells within the hippocampus. Here we discuss in particular results from the model on the effect of analogue coding levels in the Schaffer collaterals, and the fact that this depends upon the sparseness of firing rate distributions in the hippocampus.
