Abstract

When the nerve impulse patterns induced by a natural stimulus, e.g. a plant sap, in the taste sensilla of some caterpillars of the same species are compared a discouraging great variability is usually observed. To explain such variabilities of complex impulse codes, it is essential to know (a) the degree of the variability of individual receptor cells and its origin and (b) whether or not the individual cells react independent of each other.
