Sensitivity of noisy neurons to coincident inputs (Rossant et al. 2011)

"Two distant or coincident spikes are injected into a noisy balanced leaky integrate-and-fire neuron. The PSTH of the neuron in response to these inputs is calculated along with the extra number of spikes in the two cases. This number is higher for the coincident spikes, showing the sensitivity of a noisy neuron to coincident inputs."
