The ability of neurons to generate electrical signals is strongly dependent on the evolution of ion-specific pumps and channels that allow the transfer of charges under the influence of electric fields and concentration gradients. This paper presents a novel method by which flow of these charge fluxes may be computed to provide directivity of charge movement. Simulations of charge flow as well as actual electrophysiological data recorded by tetrodes are used to demonstrate the method. The… Expand

TLDR
Analyzing spatial spike propagation in expert medium spiny neurons with the charge movement model shows that electrical flow has directionality which becomes organized with behavioral learning, which implies that neurons within a network may behave as “weak learners” attending to preferred spatial directions.

Computing by physical interaction in neurons.
TLDR
The main conceptual idea is that under the influence of electric fields, efficient computation by interaction occurs between charge densities embedded within molecular structures and the transient developed flow of electrical charges. Expand
Localization of single‐cell current sources based on extracellular potential patterns: the spike CSD method
TLDR
The sCSD method is applied to EC spatial potential patterns of spikes, measured in cat primary auditory cortex with a 16‐channel chronically implanted linear probe in vivo and suggested, that the new method is potentially useful in determining fine details of the spatio‐temporal dynamics of spikes.

A new approach to spike sorting for multi-neuronal activities recorded with a tetrode—how ICA can be practical
TLDR
The results demonstrated that some outliers which may be assigned to distinct clusters if ordinary spike-sorting methods were used can be identified as overlapping spikes, and that there are functional connections between a putative pyramidal neuron and its putative dendrite. Expand
