Abstract

The mutual information between a set of stimuli and the elicited neural responses is compared to the corresponding decoded information. The decoding procedure is presented as an artificial distortion of the joint probabilities between stimuli and responses. The information loss is quantified. Whenever the probabilities are only slightly distorted, the information loss is shown to be quadratic in the distortion.
