Simultaneous recording from large numbers of neurons is a prerequisite for understanding their cooperative behavior. Various recording techniques and spike separation methods are being used toward this goal. However, the error rates involved in spike separation have not yet been quantified. We studied the separation reliability of "tetrode" (4-wire electrode)-recorded spikes by monitoring simultaneously from the same cell intracellularly with a glass pipette and extracellularly with a tetrode… Expand

Sorting Overlapping Spike Waveforms from Electrode and Tetrode Recordings
TLDR
A partially automated method that is capable of resolving overlapping spikes by constructing template waveforms for well-isolated and distinct single units and generating pair-wise combinations of those templates at all possible time shifts from each other is described. Expand
Automatic sorting for multi-neuronal activity recorded with tetrodes in the presence of overlapping spikes.
TLDR
The present procedure applies the ICA and the efficiency of the ordinary spike-sorting technique (k-means clustering) to solve the spike-overlapping and the nonstationarity problems with no limitation on the number of single neurons to be separated and provides insights into the local circuit bases of excitatory and inhibitory interactions among neighboring neurons. Expand
Handbook of Neural Activity Measurement: Extracellular spikes and CSD
TLDR
With present recording techniques and clustering methods one can sort out spike trains from tens of neurons from single tetrodes and from hundreds of neurons with multi-shank electrodes (Buzsaki, 2004); information about spiking is typically extracted from the high-frequency band of extracellular potentials. Expand
Multi-unit spike-triggered averaging: a method for probing the physiology of central synapses
TLDR
Since it requires only a single intracellular recording, multi-unit STA might be a suitable method for probing unitary synaptic connections in the intact brain, where obtaining multiple intrACEllular recordings is not feasible. Expand
Spike sorting of synchronous spikes from local neuron ensembles.
TLDR
It is shown that high spike sorting performance of in vivo recordings, including overlapping spikes, can be achieved with a recently developed filter-based template matching procedure and that overlapping spikes can be identified and assigned to individual neurons to study synchronous activity in local groups of neurons. Expand
Cell type- and activity-dependent extracellular correlates of intracellular spiking.
TLDR
It is found that spiking of excitatory neurons can significantly impact the local field potential (LFP) at frequencies as low as 20 Hz, and the common assertion that the LFP acts as proxy for synaptic activity is questioned. Expand
High-density microelectrode array recordings and real-time spike sorting for closed-loop experiments: an emerging technology to study neural plasticity
TLDR
It is argued that recent technological developments in two separate fields, namely CMOS-based high-density microelectrode arrays, which also allow for extracellular stimulation of neurons, and real-time spike sorting, will provide a powerful tool to study plasticity in neural networks consisting of several thousand neurons in vitro. Expand
Quantitative measures of cluster quality for use in extracellular recordings
TLDR
In data sets from the rodent hippocampus in which neurons were simultaneously recorded intracellularly and extracellularly, values of Isolation Distance and Lratio were related to the correct identification of spikes. Expand
Editing trains of action potentials from multi-electrode arrays
TLDR
Methods for identifying and correcting errors in recorded spike trains to recover the pattern of spikes from each neuron as faithfully as possible and work best for neurons that fire regularly. Expand
Estimating Extracellular Spike Waveforms from CA1 Pyramidal Cells with Multichannel Electrodes
TLDR
An algorithm is developed whereby local LFP signals from spike-containing channel were modeled using locally weighted polynomial regression analysis of adjoining channels without spikes, and it is shown that the algorithm can correctly extract the spike waveforms embedded in the LFP. Expand
