Spiking neurons and synaptic stimuli : determining the fidelity of coincidence-factor in neural response comparison (2008)
Journal Article
Kambhampati, C., & Sarangdhar, M. (2007). Spiking neurons and synaptic stimuli : determining the fidelity of coincidence-factor in neural response comparison. Engineering Letters International Association of Engineers, 16(4), (512-517). ISSN 1816-0948

Similarity between two spike trains is generally estimated using a ‘coincidence factor’. This factor relies on counting coincidences of firing-times for spikes in a given time window. However, in cases where there are significant fluctuations in memb...
