Matlab toolbox for analysis of coding performance in neural sensory systems

The result is a Matlab library of analytical tools for the analysis of the dependence of multi-site neural recordings on a (multidimensional) time-varying sensory signal. In particular, the toolbox implements one- and multi-dimensional reverse correlation techniques (Wiener filters), post-stimulus time histograms, information entropy, and mutual information coding efficiency. It also includes modules for analysis of the temporal structure of spike trains: for instance, to distinguish between bursts and isolated spikes.
