Information processing in the brain is believed to require coordinated activity across many neurons. With the recent development of techniques for simultaneously recording the spiking activity of large numbers of individual neurons, the search for complex multicell firing patterns that could help reveal this neural code has become possible. Here we develop a new approach for analyzing sequential firing patterns involving an arbitrary number of neurons based on relative firing order… Expand
A Set Probability Technique for Detecting Relative Time Order Across Multiple Neurons
TLDR
A probability approach based on sets of overlapping sequences is used for the detection of repeats in hippocampal place cell order during sleep, and it is shown that sequences of 7 and 8 are statistically very unlikely. Expand

With the development of multielectrode recording techniques, it is possible to measure the cell firing patterns of multiple neurons simultaneously, generating a large quantity of data. IdentificationExpand
Analyzing Functional Connectivity Using a Network Likelihood Model of Ensemble Neural Spiking Activity
TLDR
A discrete-time version of Chornoboy, Schramm, and Karr's maximum likelihood method for the simultaneous analysis of multiple pair-wise interactions among an ensemble of neurons is devised that includes a new, efficient computational strategy, a principled method to compute starting values, and a principled stopping criterion.

TLDR
An unsupervised method, SPOTDisClust (Spike Pattern Optimal Transport Dissimilarity Clustering), is introduced, for their detection from high-dimensional neural ensembles, and proposes a dissimilarity measure between neuronal patterns based on optimal transport theory. Expand
Conditional Probability-Based Significance Tests for Sequential Patterns in Multineuronal Spike Trains
TLDR
A probabilistic model is constructed that captures the counting process and is used to derive a test of significance for rejecting a compound null hypothesis that not only includes models of independent neurons but also models where neurons have weak dependencies. Expand
A novel distance measure for the unsupervised clustering of temporal patterns in high-dimensional neuronal ensembles
TLDR
In an application to neural ensemble data from macaque monkey V1 cortex, SPOTDistClust can reconstruct cortical response properties in an unsupervised function, that is, without knowledge of stimulus identity or delivery times. Expand
Unsupervised clustering of temporal patterns in high-dimensional neuronal ensembles using a novel dissimilarity measure
TLDR
In an application to neural ensemble data from macaque monkey V1 cortex, SPOTDisClust can identify different moving stimulus directions on the sole basis of temporal spiking patterns and handles efficiently the additional information from increasingly large neuronal ensembles. Expand
Cell assemblies at multiple time scales with arbitrary lag distributions
TLDR
A unifying methodological and conceptual framework is presented which detects assembly structure at many different time scales, levels of precision, and with arbitrary internal organization and finds that there is no universal cortical coding scheme, but that assembly structure and precision significantly depends on brain area recorded and ongoing task demands. Expand
Emergent cortical circuit dynamics contain dense, interwoven ensembles of spike sequences.
TLDR
The capacity for sequential spiking that cannot be explained by the overall population spiking is evaluated, and evidence for a long-postulated temporal code, the Hebbian assembly phase sequence, is found by identifying repeated and co-occurring sequences of spikes. Expand

Representation of cooperative firing activity among simultaneously recorded neurons.
TLDR
The present paper extends the visualization and possibilities of a conceptual transformation of multiple spike train data that allows the experimenter to analyze the entire network of observed neurons as an entity rather than as a summation of neuron pairs and introduces revised "charge" rules that improve "signal-to-noise" properties and in addition allow inference of directed connectivity.

Spatiotemporal firing patterns in the frontal cortex of behaving monkeys.
TLDR
Spatiotemporal firing patterns revealed by a method that detects all excessively repeating patterns regardless of their complexity or single-unit composition suggest that the patterns were generated by reverberations in a synfire mode within self-exciting cell assemblies. Expand
