Abstract

Nonlinear signal processing is an integral part of sensory transduction in the nervous system. Sensory inputs are analog, continuous-time signals with a large dynamic range, whereas central neurons encode information with limited dynamic range and temporal specificity, using fixed-width, fixed-height pulses. Sensory transduction uses nonlinear signal processing to reduce real-world input to a neural representation, with a minimal loss of information.
