## Abstract

An expression for the probability distribution of the interspike interval

of a leaky integrate-and-fire (LIF) model neuron is rigorously derived,

based on recent theoretical developments in the theory of stochastic processes.

This enables us to find for the first time a way of developing

maximum likelihood estimates (MLE) of the input information (e.g., afferent

rate and variance) for an LIF neuron from a set of recorded spike

trains. Dynamic inputs to pools of LIF neurons both with and without

interactions are efficiently and reliably decoded by applying the MLE,

even within time windows as short as 25 msec.
