First spike latency is the long-lasting period preceding the first spike of a neuron submitted to a super-threshold stimulus. It has been suggested that this latency could code for stimulus recognition in several sensory systems [1, 2].
Our results show that first spike latency coding is particularly robust for a new type of excitability called regenerative excitability .
