In this chapter, the author reflects on Terry Sejnowski's presentation during a Computational Neurobiology Laboratory journal club meeting. Sejnowski, part and parcel of the neuroscience community, talked about long-term potentiation and his proposal to get a machine to translate written text to phonemes. He also discussed his idea of noisy synapses by citing his work on integrate-and-fire neurons and their relation to noise, and how he interconnected them in a model of brain tissue to see what happened at the “thermodynamic limit”.
