Article summary:

1. Spike times carry information in the central nervous system, but it is difficult to determine which features of a spike train contain all relevant information due to the exponential expansion of the phase space.

2. Previous studies have proposed candidates for coding features, including the rate code hypothesis and spike doublets or triplets, but a durable and computationally tractable alternative to a rate code has remained elusive.

3. The authors of this study identify that information encoded in the spikes of a single neuron is fully described by only two pairwise spike features: the pairwise autocorrelation function and the pairwise cross-correlation across noisy trials.
