Abstract: Sequences of events in noise-driven excitable systems with slow variablesoften show serial correlations among their intervals of events. Here, we employa master equation for general non-renewal processes to calculate the intervaland count statistics of superimposed processes governed by a slow adaptationvariable. For an ensemble of spike-frequency adapting neurons this results inthe regularization of the population activity and an enhanced post-synapticsignal decoding. We confirm our theoretical results in a population of corticalneurons.
