Optimal sensors in random environments

Seminar: Seminars of interest | June 20 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 560 Evans Hall

 Sarah Marzen, MIT

 Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills

The efficient coding hypothesis has revolutionized theoretical neuroscience. I would argue that it is best understood using rate-distortion theory. I use rate-distortion theory to inspire a simple model of sensory adaptation. In randomly drawn, fluctuating environments, this model suggests that neurogenesis in sensory regions is unnecessary and predicts that biological sensors are poised to just...   More >
