The detection and characterization of bursting activity remains a topic where no consensual definition has been reached so far. We compare here three different approaches of spike trains variability: statistical characterization (average frequency, coefficient of variation), burst detection (Poisson and rank surprise) and multi-scale analysis (detrended fluctuations analysis). Using both real and simulated data, we show that Poisson surprise provides information closely related to the… CONTINUE READING
