Spatio-temporal correlations and visual signalling in a complete neuronal population
Statistical dependencies in the responses of sensory neurons govern both the amount of stimulus information conveyed and the means by which downstream neurons can extract it. Although a variety ofExpand

Spike-triggered neural characterization.
Spike-triggered average and covariance analyses can be used to estimate the filters and nonlinear combination rule from extracellular experimental data. Expand

Discovering Event Structure in Continuous Narrative Perception and Memory
During realistic, continuous perception, humans automatically segment experiences into discrete events. Using a novel model of cortical event dynamics, we investigate how cortical structures generateExpand

Prediction and Decoding of Retinal Ganglion Cell Responses with a Probabilistic Spiking Model
We show that the stimulus selectivity, reliability, and timing precision of primate retinal ganglion cell light responses can be reproduced accurately with a simple model consisting of a leaky integrate-and-fire spike generator driven by a linearly filtered stimulus, a postspike current, and a Gaussian noise current.

Maximum Likelihood Estimation of a Stochastic Integrate-and-Fire Neural Encoding Model
We examine a cascade encoding model for neural response in which a linear filtering stage is followed by a noisy, leaky, integrate-and-fire spike generation mechanism. Expand

Characterization of Neural Responses with Stochastic Stimuli
A fundamental goal of sensory systems neuroscience is the characterization of the functional relationship between environmental stimuli and neural response. Expand

A Model-Based Spike Sorting Algorithm for Removing Correlation Artifacts in Multi-Neuron Recordings
We examine the problem of estimating the spike trains of multiple neurons from voltage traces recorded on one or more extracellular electrodes. Traditional spike-sorting methods rely on thresholdingExpand

Statistical models for neural encoding, decoding, and optimal stimulus design.
This chapter describes statistical model-based techniques that in some cases provide a unified solution to these two coding problems. Expand

Single-trial spike trains in parietal cortex reveal discrete steps during decision-making
A better way to explain neuronal activity A brain region called the lateral intraparietal (LIP) area is involved in primate decision-making. The dominant model to explain neuronal firing in LIPExpand

Encoding and decoding in parietal cortex during sensorimotor decision-making
It has been suggested that the lateral intraparietal area (LIP) of macaques plays a fundamental role in sensorimotor decision-making. We examined the neural code in LIP at the level of individualExpand
