If, on the other hand, a short volley of synchronized spikes arrives at a neuron within a fraction of a msec, this neuron can ﬁre within a fraction of a msec.
This raises the issue whether such short volleys of synchronized spikes are a general feature, and what new kind of data processing can be made this way. A possible such mechanism are synﬁre chains (Abeles, 1991).
The difference is in the sharp synchronization of the volleys of spikes.
Model calculations show that some initial jitter in the volleys can even be reduced and synchrony sharpened up, stabilizing the propagation along the chain.
