Zusammenfassung
We studied the encoding of stimulus orientation in the visual cortex of alert animals using information theoretic methods. Based on a ‘labeled-line’ code, the encoding of orientation was mostly synergistic and only few pairs coded redundant. The synergy contributed about 20 of the information and was strongest for sites with distinct tuning curves. A recently proposed decomposition of synergy revealed that redundancy introduced by common tuning preferences is more than just compensated by noise correlations which mostly contributed synergistically. Based on a pooled response code the contribution of noise correlations diminished resulting in a severe information loss. Thus, to operate economically, cortical neurons should either employ a labeled-line code or, if using pooled responses, be highly selective in choosing afferents.
