comment Is there a random walk theory that can account for situations with more than two choices?
@Artem Kaznatcheev: Many thanks for adding the links. Following your suggestion I added a short description of the model.

comment What explains variability in the mean firing rate across biological neurons?
comment continued: For the neuron, however, this is not necessarily true. Although increasing the firing rate by a factor of 10 results in 10 times more transmitted signals, this does not make sense for a "silent" neuron. For a neuron that does not fire, speeding up by a factor of 10 is simply not defined (probably because of the lack of discrete processing steps).

@Artem Kaznatcheev: Many thanks for your comment. Actually I fear that the processor analogy might not be very useful in this context. I agree with you: if the processing rate of a processor is increased by a factor of 10, the information transfer is ten times larger, regardless of whether "firing" or "no-firing" is signaled in a given processing step.
