ABSTRACT
In this work, information theory has been employed to
study the information transmission at the mossy fibre-
granule cell synaptic relay of the cerebellum. Granule cells
(GCs) are characterised by a limited number of excitatory
and inhibitory synaptic inputs (4 typically), which allowed
us to investigate the cell's input space extensively. Here,
we present some results of our information theoretic analy-
sis (mutual information, and stimulus-specific information)
