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.
