annote = {This chapter focuses on methods from statistical physics and probability theory allowing the
analysis of spike trains in neural networks. Taking as an example the retina we present recent
works attempting to understand how retina ganglion cells encode the information transmitted to
the visual cortex via the optical nerve, by analyzing their spike train statistics. We compare
the maximal entropy models used in the literature of retina spike train analysis to rigorous
results establishing the exact form of spike train statistics in conductance-based
Integrate-and-Fire neural networks.},
