The design of large pyramidal cells and molecular processing in spines are key information processing levels in the context of the thalamocortical circuit.
Action potential synchrony across large neural ensembles is a critical code, though only one of several. The brain is full of signal (not full of noise).
Cortical processing must be assessed in the context of tight interactions with matrix thalamus, basal ganglia and other encephalic structures.
