- Ion-channel noise places limits on the miniaturization of the brain's wiringA Aldo Faisal
Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge, Downing Street, CB2 3EJ Cambridge, United Kingdom
Curr Biol 15:1143-9. 2005..Fluctuations have implications for epilepsy and neuropathic pain because changes in channel kinetics or axonal properties can change the rate at which channel noise generates spontaneous activity...
- Stochastic simulations on the reliability of action potential propagation in thin axonsA Aldo Faisal
Department of Zoology, Cambridge University, Cambridge, United Kingdom
PLoS Comput Biol 3:e79. 2007..In contrast we find that thicker axons above 0.5 microm diameter are reliable...
- Noise in the nervous systemA Aldo Faisal
Computational and Biological Learning Lab, Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge, Trumpington Street, Cambridge, CB2 1PZ, UK
Nat Rev Neurosci 9:292-303. 2008..We highlight how noise affects neuronal networks and the principles the nervous system applies to counter detrimental effects of noise, and briefly discuss noise's potential benefits...
- Near optimal combination of sensory and motor uncertainty in time during a naturalistic perception-action taskA Aldo Faisal
Dept of Engineering, Univ of Cambridge, Trumpington St, CB2 1PZ Cambridge, UK
J Neurophysiol 101:1901-12. 2009..Thus we show that subjects in a natural task are quantitatively aware of how sensory and motor variability depend on time and act so as to minimize overall task variability...
