Population Codes for Space in the Mammalian Cortex

A major goal in neuroscience is to understand neural computation in the mammalian cortex. Since the 1950s, we have learnt how cells respond to changes in the environment but the cells have largely been observed one at a time. However, single-cell recording cannot access the complexity of distribu...
