- How specific is synchronous neuronal firing? : Poster presentation (2007)
- Background Synchronous neuronal firing has been discussed as a potential neuronal code. For testing first, if synchronous firing exists, second if it is modulated by the behaviour, and third if it is not by chance, a large set of tools has been developed. However, to test whether synchronous neuronal firing is really involved in information processing one needs a direct comparison of the amount of synchronous firing for different factors like experimental or behavioural conditions. To this end we present an extended version of a previously published method NeuroXidence , which tests, based on a bi- and multivariate test design, whether the amount of synchronous firing above the chance level is different for different factors.
