To represent the neural activity, most of experimental designs utilize the local mean firing rate of neurons as the input. The mean firing rate has been estimated by “binning” neural spikes with sliding rectangular time windows of length ranging from 50 up to 100 msec. This method greatly reduces the number of zeros in the spike train point process and also provides a time to amplitude conversion of the firing events. , muscle stretch, visual orientation, movement velocity). The search for more complete mappings of receptive fields and tuning curves to the external environment has lead to the need for massively parallel neuronal recordings.
However, this time quantization introduces binning error and leads to coarse time resolution. Furthermore, the correlogram does not take advantage of the higher temporal resolution of the spike times provided by current recording methods. However, one of the disadvantages of continuous time estimation is its computational cost. The joint peristimulus time histogram  requires trial averaging and, therefore, is only applicable to experimental paradigms where trial repetition is performed, and it assumes stationarity between trials.
A detailed discussion of the analysis approaches for each hypothesis will be given next. 6: Parameters of cell signaling in the CNS . 3) with a wide variety of behaviors. The most celebrated leader of the rate coding hypothesis is English physiologist Edgar Adrian, who determined that neurons tended to modulate their firing rate in response to a stimulus (stretch receptor in the frog leg)11 . Most microelectrode-based BMIs have also utilized rate coding to map motor parameters. To represent the neural activity, most of experimental designs utilize the local mean firing rate of neurons as the input.
