Estimating the Firing Rate

  title={Estimating the Firing Rate},
  author={Shigeru Shinomoto},
Neuronal activity is measured by the number of stereotyped action potentials, called spikes, elicited in response to a stimulus or the behavioral conditions of an animal. Any nonparametric method for grasping the time-varying rate of spike firing contains a single parameter that controls the jaggedness of the estimated rate, such as the binsize of the time histogram or the bandwidth of the kernel smoother. In most neurophysiological studies, the parameter that determines the interpretation of… CONTINUE READING
