Shannon’s mathematical theory of communication defines fundamental limits on how much information can be transmitted between the different components of any man-made or biological system.

The decision about the actual number of active neurons is an open issue in spike sorting, with sparsely firing neurons and background activity the most influencing factors. Dominant-sets clustering algorithm is a graph-theoretical algorithmic procedure that successfully addresses this issue. The quality of grouping in the data is evaluated with the estimation of ‘cohesiveness’, i.e. a cluster-quality measure, for each group.

Background noise and spike overlap pose problems in contemporary spike-sorting strategies. The (non-linear) isometric feature mapping (ISOMAP) technique reveals the intrinsic data structure and helps with recognising the involved neurons.

In this tutorial by Dr. Liam Paninski, the Expectation-Maximization (EM) algorithm is discussed and illustrated in a variety of neural examples. Read the rest of this entry…
