Sir Charles Scott Sherrington is one of my science heroes, so I'm featuring him on my cogsci profile. He is often credited with coining the word "synapse."

comment Obey any command given suddenly, as in the Jumping Frenchmen of Maine
A handful of us voted to close this when it was first written. Unfortunately, the way the system works, those votes age away after a while and can't be recast by the same people. I have flagged it and attempted to bring it to the attention of the moderators. I respect your opinion, and I'm glad to have you around, I'm just inviting you to flesh things out a bit when you answer in the negative.

comment Obey any command given suddenly, as in the Jumping Frenchmen of Maine
I respect your expertise, but "because I have never observed it" isn't a good answer. Such an answer doesn't help anyone who stumbles across this in the future. If you think it's an unanswerable question, flag it to be closed (as I would certainly agree with the second premise in your comment that the question itself is a bit flimsy).

Can you back that up with some evidence from the literature. Otherwise this answer isn't very useful.

comment For binary (spike train) signals, take FFT of signal or autocorrelation of signal?
If systems identification is what you are after ("input/output modeling"), you'll definitely need some heavier hitting analyses -- check out Bob Kearney's work wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-0471274569.html

(not trying to be an overbearing curmudgeon here, just offering some constructive criticism. I'm happy to see a methods question on here!)

Otherwise, this is really just an exercise in signal processing, to be frank.

I'm using "information" as a loaded term. I was referring to both measures that you are talking about, sorry if that wasn't clear. Neither is going to tell you anything meaningful. If you're locking to a specific event (sensory input or specific motor output - e.g., an EMG of a muscle) the frequency variation will tell you something, but a "free form" recording really isn't. You'd be better off examining local field potentials (most extracellular recording systems can separate these out in the spike sorting processing) if you are trying to tease out frequency changes.
