variance meeting at the Banbury Center

April 5, 2011

This meeting gathered together a group of people who share an interesting in the variability of cortical neurons. Some, like myself, see neural variability as something that can be useful to experimenters because it provides insight into what neurons are computing. Others see variability as a nuisance that limits the ability of the cortex to represent different things. Still others see variability as being potentially useful to the animal: making it possible for neural circuits to undergo motor learning, for instance. In any event, it was a great group of people and a series of fantastic talks.
