Summary of "Spikes with short inter-spike intervals in frog retinal ganglion cells are more correlated with their adjacent neurons' activities."

Correlated firings among neurons have been extensively investigated; however, previous studies on retinal ganglion cell (RGC) population activities were mainly based on analyzing the correlated activities between the entire spike trains. In the present study, the correlation properties were explored based on burst-like activities and solitary spikes separately. The results indicate that: (1) burst-like activities were more correlated with other neurons' activities; (2) burst-like spikes correlated with their neighboring neurons represented a smaller receptive field than that of correlated solitary spikes. These results suggest that correlated burst-like spikes should be more efficient in signal transmission, and could encode more detailed spatial information.

Response to best-frequency tone bursts in the ventral cochlear nucleus is governed by ordered inter-spike interval statistics.

The spike-trains generated by short constant-amplitude constant-frequency tone bursts in the ventral cochlear nucleus of the anaesthetised guinea pig are examined. Spikes are grouped according to the ...

Intra-Spike Crosslinking Overcomes Antibody Evasion by HIV-1.

Antibodies developed during HIV-1 infection lose efficacy as the viral spike mutates. We postulated that anti-HIV-1 antibodies primarily bind monovalently because HIV's low spike density impedes bival...

Challenges in the quantification and interpretation of spike-LFP relationships.

Brain signals often show fluctuations in particular frequency bands, which are highly conserved across species and are associated with specific behavioural states. Such rhythmic patterns can be captur...

Statistics of inter-spike intervals as a routine measure of accuracy in automatic decomposition of surface electromyogram.

Automated motor unit (MU) decomposition algorithms of surface electromyogram (EMG) have been developed recently. However, a routine estimate of the decomposition accuracy is still lacking. The objecti...

Identification of pre-spike network in patients with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy.

Seizures and interictal spikes in mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) affect a network of brain regions rather than a single epileptic focus. Simultaneous electroencephalography and functional magnet...

Trial of Dextromethorphan in Rett Syndrome

Increased brain glutamate and its NMDA receptors found in the brain of younger Rett syndrome (RTT) patients cause toxic damage to neurons (the brain's nerve cells), and contributing to EEG...

Short Term and Day to Day Reproducibility of Reflectometric Measurement of Retinal Oxygen Saturation in Healthy Subjects

Adequate perfusion and oxygenation is essential for the function of the inner retina. Although this is a well known fact, measurement of oxygen saturation in the eye is still a delicate an...

Measurement of Retinal Blood Flow, Retinal Oxygenation and Retinal Oxygen Extraction in Healthy Subjects During Normoxia and Systemic Hyperoxia

The inner retina is crucially dependent on an adequate retinal blood supply. When the retina becomes ischemic and hypoxic this results in severe vision loss due to retinal neovascularizati...
