Biases in population coding of overlapping and contextual stimuli

Throughout much of the nervous system information is coded in neural population codes. While coding of single stimuli is well understood, in this talk I will show that when additional overlapping or contextual stimuli are represented, biases unavoidably emerge when one attempts to decode the presented stimuli from the neural responses. These biases persist at low noise levels, and could present both a coding limit of population codes as well as a novel prediction for psychophysically observed biases.
