Accurate statistical models of neural spike responses can characterize the information carried by neural populations. Yet, challenges in recording at the level of individual neurons commonly results in relatively limited samples of spike counts, which can lead to model overfitting. Moreover, current models assume spike counts to be Poisson-distributed, which ignores the fact that many neurons demonstrate over-dispersed spiking behavior. The Negative Binomial Generalized Linear Model (NB-GLM… CONTINUE READING
