In a previously reported study (Berger et al. 1990) we analyzed distributions of interspike intervals recorded extracellularly from cat visual cortex under four stimulus conditions. Stimuli were gratings differing in orientation and spatial frequency. The probability density function of first passage time for a random walk with drift process, which is defined by its barrier height and drift coefficient, was used to characterize the generating process of axonal discharge under resting and… Expand
Ornstein-Uhlenbeck model neuron revisited
TLDR
It is shown that the nearly linear frequency response of the neuron, starting with subthreshold values of the input, is accounted for by the variability of theinput (noise), which indicates that noise can play a positive role in nervous systems. Expand
Similarity of interspike interval distributions and information gain in a stationary neuronal firing
TLDR
The Kullback–Leibler information distance offer an indication of the exponentiality of the chosen ISI descriptor (or data): the distance is zero if, and only if, the ISIs are distributed exponentially. Expand
Variability and randomness in stationary neuronal activity
TLDR
The Kullback-Leibler distance with respect to the Poisson process is proposed as a measure of randomness in a stationary neuronal activity and can be extended to account for correlated neuronal firing. Expand

Conscious Image Processing: An Integrated Neural and Quantum Model
TLDR
An integrated model of conscious image processing in human cortex is proposed based on the Holonomic Brain Theory by Karl Pribram and related models that combines the predominantly (sub)neuronal image processing and the essentially quantum-based repetitive act of becoming-conscious of the resulting phenomenal image.

TLDR
The holonomic brain theory, developed by neuroscientist Karl Pribram initially in collaboration with physicist David Bohm, is a model of human cognition that describes the brain as a holographic storage network that allows for important aspects of human consciousness. Expand

An analysis of neural spike-train distributions: determinants of the response of visual cortex neurons to changes in orientation and spatial frequency
TLDR
The probability density function of first passage time for a random walk with drift process, which is defined by its barrier height and drift coefficient, was used to characterize the generating process of axonal discharge under resting and stimulus conditions. Expand
Theory of spatial position and spatial frequency relations in the receptive fields of simple cells in the visual cortex
TLDR
The experimental data show that, in the preferred direction of stimulus motion, the spatial response profiles of cells in the simple family are well described by the mathematical form of Gabor elementary signals, resulting in a theoretical minimum value of δxδf=1/2. Expand
Spatial frequency selectivity of cells in macaque visual cortex
TLDR
Among other things, it is shown that many stirate cells have quite narrow spatial bandwidths and at a given retinal eccentricity, the distribution of peak frequency covers a wide range of frequencies; these findings support the basic multiple channel notion. Expand
Spatial frequency analysis in the visual system.
TLDR
The aim of this paper is to explain why "spatial frequency analysis" is useful, and to review the insights into visual function that have resulted from its application. Expand
A comparison of inhibition in orientation and spatial frequency selectivity of cat visual cortex
TLDR
The method uses microiontophoresis of an excitatory amino acid to elevate maintained discharge of single neurones in the visual cortex and concludes that there is an intracortical organization of inhibitory connections between cells tuned to different orientations but not different spatial frequencies. Expand
Relationship between spatial-frequency and orientation tuning of striate-cortex cells.
TLDR
The two-dimensional RF shape of striate cells more closely approximates that predicted by a two- dimensional Gabor model or by a Gaussian-derivative model than it does the classic shape based on the output of geniculate cells with aligned RF's. Expand
Two-dimensional spectral analysis of cortical receptive field profiles
TLDR
It emerges that only a very special analytic class of receptive fields possess independent tuning functions for spatial frequency and orientation; namely, those profiles whose two-dimensional Fourier Transforms are expressible as the separable product of a radial function and an angular function.

TLDR
It is argued that the visual cortex representation corresponds closely to the Gabor scheme owing to its advantages in treating the subsequent problem of pattern recognition. Expand
Intracerebral influences on the microstructure of receptive fields of cat visual cortex
TLDR
Three categories of network properties were delineated: Those characterized by remaining invariant to any cerebral stimulation; those characterized by overall activation as by basal ganglia stimulation; and those characterized as interactive which were responsive especially to cortical stimulation.

RANDOM WALK MODELS FOR THE SPIKE ACTIVITY OF A SINGLE NEURON.
TLDR
Quantitative methods for the study of the statistical properties of spontaneously occurring spike trains from single neurons suggest a number of descriptive mathematical models that can describe a wide range of neuronal activity in terms of two parameters. Expand
