Synaptic transmission: noisy synapses and noisy neurons

Curr Biol. 1996 Oct 1;6(10):1217-8. doi: 10.1016/s0960-9822(96)00699-9.


The finding that the synapses relaying sensory input to the cortex may have different properties than intracortical synapses has implications not only for sensory processing, but for the role of noise in neural computation as well.
