Title Unit analysis in composite neural recordings
Date 1989
Description We have used threshold level, sinusoidal stimuli to selectively elicit phase-locked activity from cutaneous mechanoreceptors, for the purpose of evaluating single unit activity in multi-unit peripheral nerve recordings. Each receptor is characterized by its response to a range of mechanical stimuli and by the size and location of its receptive field. This information is used to determine the number and type of units present in multi-unit recordings made with chronically implanted electrodes and to follow the presence of the units in the recordings over time. This approach can be used with any type of composite neural recording in which units can be selectively activated and classified.
