Statistical dependencies in the responses of sensory neurons gov-
ern both the amount of stimulus information conveyed and the
means by which downstream neurons can extract it. Although a
variety of measurements indicate the existence of such
dependencies13
, their origin and importance for neural coding
are poorly understood. Here we analyse the functional significance
of correlated firing in a complete population of macaque parasol
retinal ganglion cells using a model of multi-neuron spike res-
