Unravelling the code of the brain
Scientists at the Bernstein Center Freiburg propose a new theory about signal propagation in the brain Freiburg, 27.08.2010 For more than fifty years, the neuroscience community is engaged in an intensive debate on how information is coded in the brain and transmitted reliably from one brain region to the next. Mutually exclusive coding systems have been proposed and are being energetically supported. Scientists from Freiburg University were now able to demonstrate (forthcoming ), that earlier studies were based on rather extreme propositions.
