Information Processing and Energy Dissipation in Neurons
|Title:||Information Processing and Energy Dissipation in Neurons|
|Contributors:||Still, Susanne (instructor)|

|Abstract:||We investigate the relationship between thermodynamic and information theoretic inefficiencies in an individual neuron model, the adaptive exponential integrate-and-fire neuron. Recent work has revealed that minimization of energy dissipation is tightly related to optimal information processing, in the sense that a system has to compute a maximally predictive model. In this thesis we justify the extension of these results to the neuron and quantify the neuron’s thermodynamic and information processing inefficiencies.|
