How does the brain orchestrate perceptions, thoughts and actions from the spiking activity of its neurons? Early single-neuron recording research treated spike pattern variability as noise that needed to be averaged out to reveal the brain's representation of invariant input. Another view is that variability of spikes is centrally coordinated and that this brain-generated ensemble pattern in cortical structures is itself a potential source of cognition. Large-scale recordings from neuronal… Expand

Figures and Topics from this paper

Recording Large-scale Neuronal Ensembles with Silicon Probes in the Anesthetized Rat
TLDR
An acute, large-scale neuronal recording from the left and right forelimb somatosensory cortex simultaneously in an anesthetized rat with silicon probes is described. Expand
Statistical modeling of spiking activity in large scale neuronal networks
TLDR
This approach shows how to incorporate the extra-stimulus data in identifying single cell firing properties, as well as taking a step toward reconciling the understanding of single cells with the computations being performed by the larger network. Expand
Detecting cell assemblies in large neuronal populations
TLDR
Three linear methods for the detection of cell assemblies in large neuronal populations that rely on principal and independent component analysis are reviewed and a modified framework that incorporates multiple features of these previous methods is proposed. Expand
Measuring the Quality of Neuronal Identification in Ensemble Recordings
TLDR
Information theoretic measures of action potential waveform isolation applicable to any dataset that have an intuitive, universal interpretation, that are not dependent on the methods or choice of parameters for single-unit isolation, and that have been validated using a dataset of simultaneous intracellular and extracellular neuronal recordings from Sprague Dawley rats are described. Expand
Techniques for extracting single-trial activity patterns from large-scale neural recordings
TLDR
Large, chronically implanted arrays of microelectrodes are an increasingly common tool for recording from primate cortex and can provide extracellular recordings from many (order of 100) neurons, and their utility for the study of neural dynamics is discussed. Expand
Predicting synchronous firing of large neural populations from sequential recordings
TLDR
It is shown that one can infer the activity of a full population of retina ganglion cells from sequential recordings, using a novel method based on copula distributions and maximum entropy modeling, and this method could generalize to predict the population responses to different stimuli with similar light conditions and even to different experiments. Expand
Test Statistics for the Identification of Assembly Neurons in Parallel Spike Trains
TLDR
Several statistical tests are presented to identify assembly neurons (i.e., neurons that participate in a neuronal assembly) from parallel spike trains with the aim of reducing the set of neurons to a relevant subset of them and this way ease the task of identifying neuronal assemblies in further analyses. Expand
NeuroGrid: recording action potentials from the surface of the brain
TLDR
The NeuroGrid constitutes an effective method for large-scale, stable recording of neuronal spikes in concert with local population synaptic activity, enhancing comprehension of neural processes across spatiotemporal scales and potentially facilitating diagnosis and therapy for brain disorders. Expand
Characterizing single neuron activity patterns and dynamics using multi-scale spontaneous neuronal activity recordings of cat and mouse cortex
TLDR
This thesis shows that ongoing spontaneous brain activity contains substantial structure that can be used to further the understanding of brain function. Expand
Assembly Detection in Continuous Neural Spike Train Data
TLDR
This work presents a method based on modeling spikes by influence regions of a user-specified width around the exact spike times and a clustering-like grouping of similar spike trains that is able to cope with two core challenges of this complex task: temporal imprecision and selective participation.

The Variable Discharge of Cortical Neurons: Implications for Connectivity, Computation, and Information Coding
TLDR
It is suggested that quantities are represented as rate codes in ensembles of 50–100 neurons, which implies that single neurons perform simple algebra resembling averaging, and that more sophisticated computations arise by virtue of the anatomical convergence of novel combinations of inputs to the cortical column from external sources. Expand
Automatic sorting for multi-neuronal activity recorded with tetrodes in the presence of overlapping spikes.
TLDR
The present procedure applies the ICA and the efficiency of the ordinary spike-sorting technique (k-means clustering) to solve the spike-overlapping and the nonstationarity problems with no limitation on the number of single neurons to be separated and provides insights into the local circuit bases of excitatory and inhibitory interactions among neighboring neurons. Expand
Interaction between spike waveform classification and temporal sequence detection
TLDR
This paper uses multiple tetrode recordings from the hippocampus of the freely behaving rat to show that the action potential amplitude of a given cell can vary in a systematic and activity dependent manner over behaviorally relevant time scales. Expand
What ensemble recordings reveal about functional hippocampal cell encoding.
TLDR
It is possible to determine how single neuron activity within hippocampus circuits is integrated within ensemble codes for behavioral and cognitive events. Expand
Organization of cell assemblies in the hippocampus
TLDR
Here it is found that the spike times of hippocampal pyramidal cells can be predicted more accurately by using the Spike times of simultaneously recorded neurons in addition to the animals location in space, suggesting that cell assemblies are synchronized at this timescale. Expand
Automatic sorting of multiple unit neuronal signals in the presence of anisotropic and non-Gaussian variability
TLDR
A procedure to efficiently sort spikes in the presence of noise that is anisotropic, i.e., dominated by particular frequencies, and whose amplitude distribution may be non-Gaussian, such as occurs when spike waveforms are a function of interspike interval is presented. Expand

M Mathematical analysis of neural population codes allows extraction of 'motor signals' from neuronal population recordings in the motor cortices, which can then be used in real-time to directly control movement of a robot arm. Expand
