    • Bootstrap testing for cross-correlation under low firing activity 

      González Montoro, Aldana María; Cao, Ricardo; Espinosa, Nelson; Cudeiro Mazaira, Francisco Javier; Mariño Alfonso, Xurxo (Springer, 2015-04-14)
      [Abstract] A new cross-correlation synchrony index for neural activity is proposed. The index is based on the integration of the kernel estimation of the cross-correlation function. It is used to test for the dynamic ...
    • Cross nearest-spike interval based method to measure synchrony dynamics 

      González Montoro, Aldana María; Cao, Ricardo; Faes, Christel; Molenberghs, Geert; Espinosa, Nelson; Cudeiro Mazaira, Francisco Javier; Mariño Alfonso, Xurxo (American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 2014-02)
      [Abstract] A new synchrony index for neural activity is de ned in this paper. The method is able to measure synchrony dynamics in low ring rate scenarios. It is based on the computation of the time intervals between ...
    • Functional two-way analysis of variance and bootstrap methods for neural synchrony analysis 

      González Montoro, Aldana María; Cao, Ricardo; Espinosa, Nelson; Cudeiro Mazaira, Francisco Javier; Mariño Alfonso, Xurxo (BioMed Central, 2014-08-12)
      [Abstract] Background: Pairwise association between neurons is a key feature in understanding neural coding. Statistical neuroscience provides tools to estimate and assess these associations. In the mammalian brain, ...
    • Nonparametric inference for neural synchrony under low firing activity 

      González Montoro, Aldana María (2013)
      [Abstract] The aim of this thesis is to introduce statistical tools to study neural synchrony under spontaneous activity. The data analyzed comes from extracellular recordings of the primary visual cortex of anesthetized ...
