Title:   Standard form for neural codes

Time / Date:   4:00 - 5:00 , April 26

Abstract

A neural code on n neurons is a set of binary strings of length n. Biologically speaking, these strings represent all possible firing combinations of the given n place cells for a particular location. Here, we explain what it means for two neural codes to be isomorphic to each other. This isomorphism gives rise to a standard form, i.e. a choice of a unique representative for each isomorphism class. We introduce one possible standard form, as well as an algorithm to compute that standard form for an arbitrary neural code.
