Mysterious ‘neural Noise’ Actually Primes Brain For Peak Performance

November 12, 2006

Our brains are excellent at taking various bits of probability information, weighing their relative worth, and coming to a good conclusion quickly. Now researchers offer an explanation of how our brains are able to conduct such complex Bayesian computations so easily. The brain’s white neural noise demonstrates its optimal performance of Poisson distribution. MFB
