A multivariate phase distribution and its estimation

  title={A multivariate phase distribution and its estimation},
  author={Charles F. Cadieu and Kilian Koepsell},
  journal={arXiv: Neurons and Cognition},
Circular variables such as phase or orientation have received considerable attention throughout the scientific and engineering communities and have recently been quite prominent in the field of neuroscience. While many analytic techniques have used phase as an effective representation, there has been little work on techniques that capture the joint statistics of multiple phase variables. In this paper we introduce a distribution that captures empirically observed pair-wise phase relationships…

Probabilistic Models of Phase Variables for Visual Representation and Neural Dynamics

This work develops a hierarchical model of visual processing that learns from the natural world the higher-order structure of visual motion by modeling phase transformations and develops a conditional latent variable model that captures the non-stationary phase structure produced by continuous edges.

Multivariate Phase–Amplitude Cross-Frequency Coupling in Neurophysiological Signals

This work presents a novel method for estimating the statistical dependence between one high-frequency signal and N low-frequency signals, termed multivariate phase-coupling estimation (PCE), which produces sparser estimates of CFC and can distinguish between direct and indirect coupling between neurophysiological signals.



Protein Bioinformatics and Mixtures of Bivariate von Mises Distributions for Angular Data

This work examines two natural bivariate von Mises distributions--referred to as Sine and Cosine models--which have five parameters and, for concentrated data, tend to a bivariate normal distribution, and sees that the Cosine model may be preferred.

The monogenic signal

A geometric phase interpretation that is based on the relation between the 1-D analytic signal and the 2-D monogenic signal established by the Radon (1986) transform is introduced.

High Gamma Power Is Phase-Locked to Theta Oscillations in Human Neocortex

The results indicate that transient coupling between low- and high-frequency brain rhythms coordinates activity in distributed cortical areas, providing a mechanism for effective communication during cognitive processing in humans.

A Parametric Texture Model Based on Joint Statistics of Complex Wavelet Coefficients

A universal statistical model for texture images in the context of an overcomplete complex wavelet transform is presented, demonstrating the necessity of subgroups of the parameter set by showing examples of texture synthesis that fail when those parameters are removed from the set.

The current algorithms for recognizing persons by their iris patterns are reviewed and the results of 2.3 million comparisons among eye images acquired in trials in Britain, the USA, and Japan are presented, and aspects of the process still in need of improvement are discussed.
