Abstract We present here a novel method for the classical task of extracting reoccurring spatiotemporal patterns from spiking activity of large populations of neurons. In contrast to previous studies that mainly focus on synchrony detection or exactly recurring binary patterns, we perform the search in an approximate way that clusters together nearby, noisy network states in the data. Our approach is to use minimum probability flow (MPF) parameter estimation to determinis- tically fit very… Expand
Unsupervised clustering of temporal patterns in high-dimensional neuronal ensembles using a novel dissimilarity measure
An unsupervised method, SPOTDisClust (Spike Pattern Optimal Transport Dissimilarity Clustering), is introduced, for their detection from high-dimensional neural ensembles, and proposes a dissimilarity measure between neuronal patterns based on optimal transport theory. Expand
Unsupervised clustering of temporal patterns in high-dimensional neuronal ensembles using a novel dissimilarity measure
In an application to neural ensemble data from macaque monkey V1 cortex, SPOTDisClust can identify different moving stimulus directions on the sole basis of temporal spiking patterns and handles efficiently the additional information from increasingly large neuronal ensembles. Expand
A novel distance measure for the unsupervised clustering of temporal patterns in high-dimensional neuronal ensembles
In an application to neural ensemble data from macaque monkey V1 cortex, SPOTDistClust can reconstruct cortical response properties in an unsupervised function, that is, without knowledge of stimulus identity or delivery times. Expand
PRANAS: A New Platform for Retinal Analysis and Simulation
A new free access user-end software allowing to better understand this coding of the retina, called PRANAS, which integrates a retina simulator allowing large scale simulations while keeping a strong biological plausibility and a toolbox for the analysis of spike train population statistics. Expand

Detecting Multineuronal Temporal Patterns in Parallel Spike Trains
We present a non-parametric and computationally efficient method that detects spatiotemporal firing patterns and pattern sequences in parallel spike trains and tests whether the observed numbers ofExpand
Detecting cell assemblies in large neuronal populations
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
Searching for Collective Behavior in a Large Network of Sensory Neurons
The properties of the neural vocabulary are explored by estimating its entropy, which constrains the population's capacity to represent visual information, and classifying activity patterns into a small set of metastable collective modes, showing that the neural codeword ensembles are extremely inhomogenous.

Finding neural assemblies with frequent item set mining
This work proposes a new assembly detection method based on frequent item set mining (FIM), which is able to reliably suppress false discoveries, while it is still very sensitive in discovering synchronous activity. Expand
Modeling Higher-Order Correlations within Cortical Microcolumns
The results demonstrate the importance of higher-order interactions to describe the structure of correlated activity in cortical networks, and Boltzmann Machines with hidden units provide a succinct and effective way to capture these dependencies without increasing the difficulty of model estimation and evaluation.

Stimulus-dependent Maximum Entropy Models of Neural Population Codes
It is shown how the stimulus-dependent maximum entropy model, in conjunction with static maximum entropy models of population vocabulary, can be used to estimate information-theoretic quantities like average surprise and information transmission in a neural population. Expand
The Structure of Multi-Neuron Firing Patterns in Primate Retina
Large-scale multi-electrode recordings were used to measure electrical activity in nearly complete, regularly spaced mosaics of several hundred ON and OFF parasol retinal ganglion cells in macaque monkey retina, and pairwise and adjacent interactions accurately accounted for the structure and prevalence of multi-neuron firing patterns.

NeuroXidence: reliable and efficient analysis of an excess or deficiency of joint-spike events
It is demonstrated, on both simulated data and single-unit activity recorded in cat visual cortex, that NeuroXidence discriminates reliably between significant and spurious events that occur by chance. Expand
Weak pairwise correlations imply strongly correlated network states in a neural population
It is shown, in the vertebrate retina, that weak correlations between pairs of neurons coexist with strongly collective behaviour in the responses of ten or more neurons, and it is found that this collective behaviour is described quantitatively by models that capture the observed pairwise correlations but assume no higher-order interactions.
