Namely, we suggest that a thinking system should work as a machine, that adjusts its architecture in response both to sensory input, and to the processes inside itself in an analogue (i.e. nonalgorithmic) way.

An important question in the field of computational neuroscience is how these sensory neurons encode environmental information in a way which may be simply analyzed by subsequent systems.
Dynamic State Estimation Based on Poisson Spike Trains: Towards a Theory of Optimal Encoding
This implies that the firing rate of the sensory neurons must exceed a threshold in order to be able to track the input properly.
Dynamic State Estimation Based on Poisson Spike Trains: Towards a Theory of Optimal Encoding
The dependence of this optimal tuning width as a function of the stimulus properties is discussed in the context of an ecological theory of sensory processing .
Dynamic State Estimation Based on Poisson Spike Trains: Towards a Theory of Optimal Encoding
In our case, given the sensory neurons, specified by their preferred stimuli Θm, the tuning functions are specified by the maximal firing rate φ and the tuning width α. figure 6 shows a colormap of the MMSE for an Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process for a range of values of α and φ.
