A. Houtsma corrects me--the neurons are in the IC, not the OT. My copy of the article was already off being read by a colleague, and I was working from (my well-known to be fallible) memory. For those of you with a copy of Biophysics of Computation, look at page 477, where Koch indicates the need for a detailed understanding of multiplication in at least one neurobiological model system. He describes it as a topic for a Ph.D. Thesis, but I suspect whoever does the research will find it a bit more important. For example, multiplication is probably key to how synchronized spike streams are brought together again, and may play a role (in conjunction with variable neural delays) in steering sensory afference to update the state of an object being held in an internal model of the external world. -- --- Harry Erwin, PhD, Senior Lecturer of Computing, University of Sunderland.
