Abstract

The jointstatistical dependednce between spike trains can be assessed using cumulant densities. It is believed that the interpretation of covariance measures of this kind can be facilitated by means of computer simulation studies involving simplified model neurones. The paper outlines an investigation based on the use of frequency-domain analysis methods in conjunction with a simple neurone model. The analysis involves calculation of cross-spectra and coherence and model outputs have been compared with experimental findings.
