Abstract. We address the questions of identifying pairs of interacting neurons from the observation of their spiking activity. The neuronal network is modeled by a system of interacting point processes with memory of variable length. The influence of a neuron on another can be either excitatory or inhibitory. To identify the existence and the nature of an interaction we propose an algorithm based only on the observation of joint activity of the two neurons in successive time slots. This reduces… Expand

This work extends the RMF computational framework to neural networks modeled by point processes with exponential stochastic intensities, and shows that metastable finite-size networks admit multistable RMF limits, which are fully characterized by stationary firing rates. Expand

The replica framework is extended to allow elementary replica constituents to be composite objects, namely, pairs of neurons, as they include pairwise interactions and exhibit non-trivial dependencies in their stationary dynamics, which cannot be captured by first-order replica models. Expand
