The new generation of silicon-based multielectrodes comprising hundreds or more electrode contacts offers unprecedented possibilities for simultaneous recordings of spike trains from thousands of neurons. Such data will not only be invaluable for finding out how neural networks in the brain work, but will likely be important also for neural prosthesis applications. This opportunity can only be realized if efficient, accurate and validated methods for automatic spike sorting are provided. In… Expand

A Simple Method to Simultaneously Detect and Identify Spikes from Raw Extracellular Recordings
TLDR
This work shows that a single-step processing of raw (unfiltered) extracellular signals is sufficient for both the detection and identification of active neurons, thus greatly simplifying and optimizing the spike sorting approach. Expand
Extracellular electrophysiology with close-packed recording sites: Spike sorting and characterization
TLDR
Leveraging the replication of the activity from a single neuron on nearby recording sites, a spike sorting method is designed consisting of three primary steps that extracts the activity patterns of individual neurons from the extracellular traces. Expand
Modeling realistic extracellular spiking activity in populations of neurons for the purpose of evaluating automatic spike-sorting algorithms
TLDR
Here the authors present example results relevant for tetrode and polytrode recordings in cortex and hippocampus, and present test data for situations where prominent electrical boundary-condition effects significantly modify the recorded potentials, and FEM modeling must be used to solve the electrostatic problem.

SPySort: Neuronal Spike Sorting with Python
TLDR
This work presents here a pure Python implementation of a well tested spike sorting procedure, designed in a modular way in order to favour a smooth transition from an interactive sorting, for instance with IPython, to an automatic one. Expand
Fast and accurate spike sorting in vitro and in vivo for up to thousands of electrodes
TLDR
A general solution to sort spikes from large-scale extracellular recordings, based on a highly automated algorithm to extract spikes from extracllular data, and it is shown that this algorithm reached near optimal performance both in vitro and in vivo. Expand

Large-scale recording of neuronal ensembles
TLDR
Large-scale recordings from neuronal ensembles now offer the opportunity to test competing theoretical frameworks and require further development of the neuron–electrode interface, automated and efficient spike-sorting algorithms for effective isolation and identification of single neurons, and new mathematical insights for the analysis of network properties.

A tool for synthesizing spike trains with realistic interference
TLDR
An analysis of the transmission of intracellular signals from neurons to an extracellular electrode, and a set of MATLAB functions based on this analysis that generate realistic but controllable synthetic signals that can be used to generate realistic (non-Gaussian) background noise. Expand
Unsupervised spike sorting with ICA and its evaluation using GENESIS simulations
TLDR
In this paper, the potential of independent component analysis (ICA) for spike sorting and detection is studied and a biologically realistic simulation of hippocampal CA3 is used to obtain a measure of the quality and usability of ICA for solving the neural cocktail party problem. Expand
Test of spike-sorting algorithms on the basis of simulated network data
TLDR
This work uses the neural simulator GENESIS to simulate a region of rat hippocampus containing 90 cells and “record” simulated extracellular potentials from “virtual electrodes” and produces test data closely resembling multisite neuronal recordings. Expand
On the variability of manual spike sorting
TLDR
Waveforms were recorded using a micro-electrode array and were used to construct a statistically similar synthetic dataset and showed wide variability in the number of neurons and spikes detected in real data. Expand
Multi-Electrode Spike Sorting by Clustering Transfer Functions
TLDR
A new paradigm is proposed for sorting spikes in multielectrode data using ratios of transfer functions between cells and electrodes based on properties of the tissue, the electrodes and their relative geometries that is insensitive to variations in the shape and amplitude of a spike. Expand
Simultaneous paired intracellular and tetrode recordings for evaluating the performance of spike sorting algorithms
TLDR
Simultaneous single or paired intracellular and tetrode recordings are used here to evaluate a contemporary spike sorting algorithm for isolated as well as overlapped events and to demonstrate that overlapping extracellular spikes combine additively. 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
Accuracy of tetrode spike separation as determined by simultaneous intracellular and extracellular measurements.
TLDR
It is hypothesized that automatic spike-sorting algorithms have the potential to significantly lower error rates, and implementation of a semi-automatic classification system confirms this suggestion, reducing errors close to the estimated optimum, in the range 0-8%. Expand
