Neuronal communication forms the basis for all behavior, from the smallest movement to our grandest thought processes. Among the many mechanisms that support these functions, spike timing is among the most powerful and-until recently-perhaps the least studied. In the last two decades, however, the study of spike timing has exploded. The heightened
