Spike-Train Communities: Finding Groups of Similar Spike Trains

M. D. Humphries
2011 Journal of Neuroscience  
Identifying similar spike-train patterns is a key element in understanding neural coding and computation. For single neurons, similar spike patterns evoked by stimuli are evidence of common coding.  ...  I derive a new method from network theory that solves this key difficulty: it self-determines the maximum number of groups in any set of spike trains, and groups them to maximize intragroup similarity.  ...  Cortex-like synthetic spike-train data  ...
