Neural correlations, population coding and computation.
Nat Rev Neurosci, 7:35866, 2006.
This review paper contains many references on the relationship
between
population coding and correlations, using both Shannon and
Fisher
information.

Decoding neuronal spike trains: how important are
correlations?
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A., 100:73487353, 2003.
These two papers go through all the details for Shannon
information.

This paper gives the other side of the debate, arguing against
the
above two papers.
