Nigel STOCKS - The role of noise in information-optimal coding

In this talk I will discuss information flow in various types of stochastic pooling array. The arrays are chosen from simple paradigmatic examples that are informative for a number of engineering and neural systems. Specifically, the question as to how noise effects the flow of information, and also how the noise should be taken into account when designed optimal coding schemes, will be considered.
