Kernel Methods on Spike Train Space for Neuroscience: A Tutorial

Il Memming Park, Sohan Seth, Antonio R.C. Paiva, Lin Li, Jose C. Principe
2013 IEEE Signal Processing Magazine  
This tutorial illustrates why kernel methods can, and have already started to, change the way spike trains are analyzed and processed.  ...  Over the last decade several positive definite kernels have been proposed to treat spike trains as objects in Hilbert space.  ...  On the other hand, a better method for reading out the stimulus from the spike trains (neural decoding) can have major impact on a number of clinical and biomedical applications.  ...
