Special Issue Information
Information theory has emerged as a framework for investigating how neural populations operate. However, it is difficult to scale information-theoretic methods to large neural populations or long recordings. At the same time, progress in recording techniques yields ever-increasing numbers of simultaneously recorded neurons, providing rich datasets for the analysis of underlying neural population dynamics. New modeling and methodological approaches are developed to investigate neural dynamics and exploit the advantages of information-theoretic measures in this context, dealing with the challenges of computational and sample complexities.
This Special Issue is concerned with the latest contributions to modeling neural dynamics, in conjunction with approaches from information theory, which are applied to tuning and interpreting dynamical models. We also invite research at the intersection between machine learning and neuroscience aiming to scale dynamics or information theory approaches to larger scales.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
