Information processing during transient responses in the crayfish visual system [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
We analyzed sustaining fiber responses in the crayfish visual system to light pulses using information processing techniques. The light pulse stimuli elicited a transient and a steady-state component in the EPSP input and in the firing rate of the spike train output. The overall information transfer of the system was very low ($10^{-4}$), with a sharp increase during the transient portion of the response followed by a steady decrease. The information transfer dynamics are consistent with a simple spike generator model that depends explicitly on stimulus changes. The present analysis also corroborates the observed light reflex behavior.
