How advances in neural recording affect data analysis
Over the last five decades, progress in neural recording techniques has allowed the number of simultaneously recorded neurons to double approximately every 7 years, mimicking Moore's law. SuchExpand

Inferring functional connections between neurons
A central question in neuroscience is how interactions between neurons give rise to behavior. In many electrophysiological experiments, the activity of a set of neurons is recorded while sensoryExpand

Rewiring Neural Interactions by Micro-Stimulation
Plasticity is a crucial component of normal brain function and a critical mechanism for recovery from injury. In vitro, associative pairing of presynaptic spiking and stimulus-induced postsynapticExpand

Spatially Distributed Local Fields in the Hippocampus Encode Rat Position
Extracting Spatial Information The location of a rat can be deciphered from hippocampal activity by detecting the firing of individual place-selective neurons. In contrast, the local field potentialExpand

The uncertainty associated with visual flow fields and their influence on postural sway: Weber's law suffices to explain the nonlinearity of vection.
When we stand upright, we integrate cues from multiple senses, such as vision and proprioception, to maintain and regulate our vertical posture. How these cues are combined has been the focus of aExpand

Generalization of Stochastic Visuomotor Rotations
Generalization studies examine the influence of perturbations imposed on one movement onto other movements. The strength of generalization is traditionally interpreted as a reflection of theExpand

Serotonin Affects Movement Gain Control in the Spinal Cord
A fundamental challenge for the nervous system is to encode signals spanning many orders of magnitude with neurons of limited bandwidth. To meet this challenge, perceptual systems use gain control.Expand

Functional Connectivity and Tuning Curves in Populations of Simultaneously Recorded Neurons
How interactions between neurons relate to tuned neural responses is a longstanding question in systems neuroscience. Here we use statistical modeling and simultaneous multi-electrode recordings toExpand

Saliency and saccade encoding in the frontal eye field during natural scene search.
The frontal eye field (FEF) plays a central role in saccade selection and execution. Using artificial stimuli, many studies have shown that the activity of neurons in the FEF is affected by bothExpand
