pulse of signals
"Our findings strongly suggest that the low channel capacities previously observed at a single cell level does not reflect an inherent physical limit, but rather a natural trade off between information transfer at the single cell vs. population levels. This implies that the level of noise in individual signaling networks and cells can be regulated to produce reliable information at the level of individuals or populations, depending on the phenotypic requirements of the organism."
