A recent experiment showed that neurons in the primary auditory cortex of the monkey do not change their mean firing rate during an ongoing tone stimulus. The only change was an enhanced correlation among the individual spike trains during the tone. We show that there is an easy way to extract this coherence information in the cortical cell population by projecting the spike trains through depressing synapses onto a postsynaptic neuron.
