Perceptual detection and stochastic dynamics

Perceptual detection and stochastic dynamics

(p.213) 7 Perceptual detection and stochastic dynamics
The Noisy Brain

Edmund T. Rolls

Oxford University Press

This chapter shows how stochastic dynamics help to understand the computational mechanisms involved in perceptual detection. It examines how the probabilistic detection of signals close to threshold is influenced by the stochastic noise generated by the probabilistic spiking of neurons in the networks involved in perception.

Keywords:   stochastic dynamics, perceptual detection, probabilistic detection, noise, spiking
