Assessing spatial vision - automated measurement of the contrast-sensitivity function in the hooded rat.
We therefore designed an economical and rapid method to assess the hooded rat's CSF, using a computer monitor to display stimuli and an infrared touch screen to record responses. A six-alternative forced-choice task presented trials in which a sine-wave grating (S+), varying in spatial frequency and...
Independent component analyses for quantifying neuronal ensemble interactions.
We describe applications of principal component analysis (PCA) and independent component analysis (ICA) (Cardoso J-F, Souloumiac A. IEE-Proc F 1993;140:362-70; Hyvarinen A, Oja E. Neural Comput 1997;9:1483-92; Lee TW, Girolami M, Sejnowski TJ. Neural Comp 1999;11:417-41) to neuronal ensemble data. S...
A simple analytical method for determining the steady-state potential in models of geometrically complex neurons.
A method is presented for solving the cable equation for a spiking neuron below firing threshold or a nonspiking neuron of arbitrary geometry under constant stimulation. The neuron structure is considered as a tree composed of a set of cylinder cables of three types (terminal, intermediate and branc...
Hybrid voltage sensor imaging of eGFP-F expressing neurons in chicken midbrain slices.
We have adapted a hVoS system for a chicken midbrain slice preparation by combining genetically expressed farnesylated eGFP with dipicrylamine (DPA). Depending on the cellular potential, DPA is shifted in the membrane, resulting in quenching of eGFP fluorescence linearly to the membrane potential by...
Localising and classifying neurons from high density MEA recordings.
We show how the spatial pattern of the extracellular signal is determined by both the electrophysiology and morphology of neurons. Starting from known current source models for the generation of the extracellular potential, we use the spatial pattern observed across a multi-electrode array to locali...
Constructing fMRI connectivity networks: a whole brain functional parcellation method for node definition.
We introduce a novel method for the intra subject topological characterization of the nodes of fMRI brain networks, based on a whole brain parcellation scheme. The proposed whole brain parcellation algorithm divides the brain into clusters that are homogeneous from the anatomical and functional poin...
Analytical methods and experimental approaches for electrophysiological studies of brain oscillations.
Brain oscillations are increasingly the subject of electrophysiological studies probing their role in the functioning and dysfunction of the human brain. In recent years this research area has seen rapid and significant changes in the experimental approaches and analysis methods. This article review...
An inexpensive, charge-balanced rodent deep brain stimulation device: a step-by-step guide to its procurement and construction.
We believe that the low adoption rate of previously described methods is a result of the complexity of replicating and implementing these methods. Here were describe both the design and procurement of a simple and inexpensive stimulator designed to be compatible with commonly used, commercially avai...
Preprocessing effects of 22 linear univariate features on the performance of seizure prediction methods
• 22 linear univariate features are combined in one feature space. • An SVM classifier is used to discriminate the feature space to preictal or non-preictal states....
