When there is no signal, uncertainty about what signal may come next is high and the population edges its bets by exhibiting strong diversity in the sensitivity of the individual cells (broad distribution in K1/2) to many different signals. But once a given signal L exceeded a threshold (L0 predicted by the mathematical model), the sensory diversity collapsed, enabling the entire population to 'focus' on that particular signal.
