When correlation is measured in the presence of noise, its value is decreased. In single-neuron recording experiments, for example, the correlation of selectivity indices in a pair of tasks may be assessed across neurons, but, because the number of trials is limited, the measured index values for each neuron will be noisy. This attenuates the correlation. A correction for such attenuation was proposed by Spearman more than 100 yr ago, and more recent work has shown how confidence intervals may… CONTINUE READING
