Effective force control by muscle synergies
TLDR
It is shown that muscle synergies can be used to generate target forces in multiple directions with the same accuracy achieved using individual muscles as well as as effectively as individual muscles to control cursor movement in the force reaching task. Expand
Differences in Adaptation Rates after Virtual Surgeries Provide Direct Evidence for Modularity
TLDR
Testing the prediction that in a truly modular controller it must be harder to adapt to perturbations that are incompatible with the modules indicates that muscle synergies are key elements of a modular architecture underlying motor control and adaptation. Expand
Synchronization of neuronal responses in primary visual cortex of monkeys viewing natural images.
TLDR
The short latency of the stimulation-related synchronization phenomena suggests a fast-acting mechanism for the coordination of spike timing that may contribute to the basic operations of scene segmentation. Expand
Effort minimization and synergistic muscle recruitment for three-dimensional force generation
TLDR
It is found that the minimum effort recruitment of synergies predicted the observed muscle patterns better than the minimum efforts of individual muscles, suggesting that the CNS generates three-dimensional forces by sub-optimal recruitment of muscle synergies. Expand
Finding neural assemblies with frequent item set mining
TLDR
This work proposes a new assembly detection method based on frequent item set mining (FIM), which is able to reliably suppress false discoveries, while it is still very sensitive in discovering synchronous activity. Expand
Efficient Identification of Assembly Neurons within Massively Parallel Spike Trains
TLDR
This contribution presents approaches to actually identify the individual neurons involved in assemblies, and may complement other methods and also provide a way to reduce data sets to the “relevant” neurons, thus allowing to carry out a refined analysis of the detailed correlation structure due to reduced computation time.

Evaluation of a Pose-Shared Synergy-Based Isometric Model for Hand Force Estimation: Towards Myocontrol
TLDR
The results showed that the muscle synergy concept improves the isometric force estimation paving the way for a synergy-based myoelectric control. Expand
Spatially organized spike correlation in cat visual cortex
TLDR
This work analyzed parallel spike recordings performed using a 10x10 electrode grid and calculated all possible pairwise correlations between multi-unit activities (MUA) by cross-correlation and extracted significantly correlated pairs using a boot-strap procedure. Expand
Changes in Muscle Synergy Organization After Neurological Lesions
TLDR
New insights are gained on the neural organization of the muscle patterns for reaching by using multidimensional decomposition algorithms to identify muscle synergies in patients with damage to the cerebral cortex and to the cerebellum. Expand
An accretion based data mining algorithm for identification of sets of correlated neurons
TLDR
This paper presents a meta-narrative architecture suitable for modeling the dynamic response of the immune system to treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation. Expand
