Building a Dynamical Network Model from Neural Spiking Data: Application of Poisson Likelihood

  title={Building a Dynamical Network Model from Neural Spiking Data: Application of Poisson Likelihood},
  author={Ozgur R Doruk and Kechen Zhang},
  journal={arXiv: Neurons and Cognition},
Research showed that, the information transmitted in biological neurons is encoded in the instants of successive action potentials or their firing rate. In addition to that, in-vivo operation of the neuron makes measurement difficult and thus continuous data collection is restricted. Due to those reasons, classical mean square estimation techniques that are frequently used in neural network training is very difficult to apply. In such situations, point processes and related likelihood methods…

An attempt to fit all parameters of a dynamical recurrent neural network from sensory neural spiking data
This work will be a continuation of a previous study where the parameters associated with the sigmoidal gain functions are not taken into account, and will construct a similar framework but all parameters related to the model are estimated.
Fitting of dynamic recurrent neural network models to sensory stimulus-response data
A theoretical study aiming at model fitting for sensory neurons with universal approximation feature of the recurrent dynamical neuron network models, which allows it to describe excitatory-inhibitory characteristics of an actual sensory neural network with any desired number of neurons.


Theoretical Neuroscience: Computational and Mathematical Modeling of Neural Systems

This article begins a systematic examination of the dynamics of continuous-time recurrent neural networks with a fairly complete description of the possible dynamical behavior and bifurcations of one- and two-neuron circuits.
A consensus layer V pyramidal neuron can sustain interpulse-interval coding
The present study examines the feasibility of IPI-coding and examines the noise sources that limit the information rate of such an encoding and justifies a pervasive and simplifying assumption of computational modelers—that a class of cortical neurons can be treated as linearly additive, computational devices.
A model of neuronal bursting using three coupled first order differential equations
The equations, which were initially developed to explain isolated triggered bursts, provide one of the simplest models of the more general phenomenon of oscillatory burst discharge.
Active Data Collection for Efficient Estimation and Comparison of Nonlinear Neural Models
A theoretical study of a general two-stage computational method that may help to significantly reduce the number of stimuli needed to obtain an accurate mathematical description of nonlinear neural responses.
Intracellular calcium dynamics permit a Purkinje neuron model to perform toggle and gain computations upon its inputs
The model can replicate these toggle and gain functions, dependent upon a novel account of intracellular calcium dynamics that is applicable in real Purkinje cells, under conditions of CF and PF input.
Adaptive stimulus optimization for sensory systems neuroscience
It is proposed that fast, on-line stimulus optimization enabled by increasing computer power can make it practical to move sensory neuroscience away from a descriptive paradigm and toward a new paradigm of real-time model estimation and comparison.
Temporal precision in the neural code and the timescales of natural vision
It is demonstrated that the relevant timescale of neuronal spike trains depends on the frequency content of the visual stimulus, and that ‘relative’, not absolute, precision is maintained both during spatially uniform white-noise visual stimuli and naturalistic movies.
