I will discuss the details of the following paper:
B. G. Borghuis, C. P. Ratliff, R. G. Smith, P. Sterling, and V. Balasubramanian. Design of a neuronal array. Journal of Neuroscience, 28:3178–3189, 2008.
I'd also mention a couple of related papers, including those cited in:
T. E. Holy. ”Yes! We’re all individuals!”: redundancy in neuronal circuits. Nature Neuroscience, 13:1306–1307, 2010.
Basically I plan to lead a discussion of efficient coding, population coding, redundancies in neural populations, and retinal coding. This is partly because we're finishing a journal draft on this topic. It would be great if you could bring any other papers that you'd like to discuss.
