Basic questions about neurons

I am trying to understand the basics behind neural spike trains and I
only have guesses at this point. Can neural spike trains be viewed as
an information stream where the timing between each spike represents
unique data bits of the specific information stream, i.e. visual
explicit memory data?

Does timing between spikes carry such significant information? If so,
can neurons be trained to record data streams through their input
synapses and then be somehow triggered for replaying them through their
output synapses?

Thanks for any info.
