A point process framework for relating neural spiking activity to spiking history, neural ensemble, and extrinsic covariate effects.


Multiple factors simultaneously affect the spiking activity of individual neurons. Determining the effects and relative importance of these factors is a challenging problem in neurophysiology. We propose a statistical framework based on the point process likelihood function to relate a neuron's spiking probability to three typical covariates: the neuron's… (More)
