The special issue of Biological Cybernetics focused on the contributions of Jose Pedro Segundo in the field of neuronal dynamics of sensory coding. Jose Pedro (Pepe) Segundo, worked as a professor at UCLA and played a key role in conducting research in the concerned field. He became a doctor after completing a bachelor's degree in mathematics and premedical sciences. He made significant efforts to assimilate emerging concepts in dynamical systems theory and time series and point process analysis to apply them to neuroscience. He found ways to derive and to illustrate conceptual bases for coding and dynamical repertoires in sensory and other systems with examples and generalizations. He also recognized that sensory systems offered opportunities for exploring the role of neuronal dynamics. His research efforts covered the properties of many preparations, including invertebrates, cats, monkey, and man.
