Improvements to the sensitivity of gravitational clustering for multiple neuron recordings.

Author information

Department of Anatomy, University of Cambridge, UK.


We outline two improvements to the technique of gravitational clustering for detection of neuronal synchrony, which are capable of improving the method's detection of weak synchrony with limited data. The advantages of the enhancements are illustrated using data with known levels of synchrony and different interspike interval distributions. The novel simulation method described can easily generate such test data. An important dependence of the sensitivity of gravitational clustering to the interspike interval distribution of the analysed spike trains is described.
