Multiple electrodes are now a standard tool in neuroscience research that make it possible to study the simultaneous activity of several neurons in a given brain region or across different regions. The data from multi-electrode studies present important analysis challenges that must be resolved for optimal use of these neurophysiological measurements to answer questions about how the brain works. Here we review statistical methods for the analysis of multiple neural spike-train data and discuss… Expand

Common-input models for multiple neural spike-train data
TLDR
A multivariate point-process model in which the observed activity of a network of neurons depends on three terms: the experimentally-controlled stimulus; the spiking history of the observed neurons; and a hidden term that corresponds, for example, to common input from an unobserved population of neurons that is presynaptic to two or more cells in the observed population.
