Understanding intelligence -how we may be able to replicate intelligence in machines, and how the brain produces intelligent behavior- is one of the greatest challenges in science and technology.
There are many aspects of human intelligence which have been impossible so far to replicate in...

Abstract: Last two-three decades have convinced the computational neuroscience community that sensory neurons encode information about the world not just in their firing rate, but also in the precise timing of their action potentials. However, whether this information is used by animals to actually...
