We show that information bottleneck optimization and extraction of independent components can be implemented with stochastic spiking neurons with refractoriness. The new learning rule that achieves this is derived from information optimization principles. Furthermore, we demonstrate that extraction of independent components can be implemented in a biologically realistic way using interneurons.
