Information theory

To understand information processing in the brain, I co-developed an open source toolbox (TRENTOOL) that is specialized on estimating information theoretic quantities from neural recordings. Using this toolbox,  I showed that transfer entropy is capable of detecting the interaction delay and the direction of information flow between brain areas, using my own turtle ex vivo recordings. Currently, the toolbox is extended to also quantify active information storage, and return the time resolved versions of both, active information storage and transfer.
