Back in 1948, Shannon introduced Information Theory with his landmark paper “A mathematical theory of communication”[1]. Since then, Neuroscience has been treated by researchers as a major field of application of this new theory,  beyond its original scope. A recent special issue of the Journal of Computational Neuroscience on Methods of Information Theory in Neuroscience Research focuses on current methods and applications of Information Theory to neural systems.

Signal-to-Noise ratio (SNR) generically means the dimensionless ratio of signal power to noise power. It has a long history of being used in neuroscience as a measure of the fidelity of signal transmission and detection by neurons and synapses.

Information theoretic methods are now widely used for the analysis of spike train data. However, developing robust implementations of these methods can be tedious and time-consuming. In order to facilitate further adoption of these methods, the Spike Train Analysis Toolkit implements several information-theoretic spike train analysis techniques.
