A population code with added grandmothers?

  • Malcolm P. Young (a1), Stefano Panzeri (a1) and Robert Robertson (a1)

Page's “localist” code, a population code with occasional, maximally firing elements, does not seem to us usefully or testably different from sparse population coding. Some of the evidence adduced by Page for his proposal is not actually evidence for it, and coding by maximal firing is challenged by lower firing observed in neuronal responses to natural stimuli.
