Miller Lab alumnus David Freedman and colleagues present a model that shows how categorical neural activity can develop through learning. As a result of top-down influences from decision neurons, categorical representations develop in neurons that show choice-correlated activity fluctuations. They test the model via recordings from parietal cortex.
