[The "pro" and "con" of the hypothesis of interimpulse intervalic information coding in the nervous system].

[Article in Russian]


The present views are outlined on the principles of information code in the nervous system. It is shown that the frequency modulation of the rhythmical neuronal activity alone is unable to provide the processing and coding of the information necessary for cognitive activity. The fluctuation of the between-impulse intervals which has been revealed by many authors is a treated as novel acquisition in the process of progressive evolution. The intervals and their various combinations as code signals can ensure the information processes simultaneously in a great number of neurons and synapses. The present state of neurophysiology and information theory don't enable an alternative hypothesis to be advanced.
