    • Information Processing in Dendritic Spines 

      Koch, C.; Poggio, T. (1983-03-01)
      Dendritic spines are small twigs on the dendrites of a very large class of neurons in the central nervous system. There are between 10 (3) and 10 (5) spines per neuron, each one including at least one synapse, i.e. a ...
    • Nonlinear Interactions in a Dendritic Tree: Localization, Timing and Role in Information Processing 

      Poggio, T.; Koch, C. (1981-09-01)
      In a dendritic tree transient synaptic inputs activating ionic conductances with an equilibrium potential near the resting potential can veto very effectively other excitatory inputs. Analog operations of this type can ...
    • Synapses That Compute Motion 

      Poggio, T.; Koch, C. (1987-06-01)
      Biophysics of computation is a new field that attempts to characterize the role in information processing of the several biophysical mechanisms in neurons, synapses, and membranes that have been uncovered in recent ...
    • A Theoretical Analysis of Electrical Properties of Spines 

      Koch, C.; Poggio, T. (1983-04-01)
      The electrical properties of a cortical (spiny) pyramidal cell were analyzed on the basis of passive cable theory from measurements made on histological material (Koch, Poggio & Torre 1982). The basis of this analysis ...
