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...
Automated touch screen device for recording complex rodent behaviors
Journal of Neuroscience Methods 233:129 (2014)• A new hardware/software system was developed to monitor rodent behaviors. • Touch screen technology is able to record all movements with high sensitivity....
Modification of commercially available image analysis software for semi-automated qualitative analysis of axon regeneration and myelination ...
Journal of Neuroscience Methods 233:45 (2014)• Reliable and economical tool to assist in nerve histology analysis. • Saves approximately 50% time. • H...
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....
