On-Line Real-Time Oriented Application for Neuronal Spike Sorting with Unsupervised Learning
Multisite electrophysiological recordings have become a standard tool for exploring brain functions. These techniques point out the necessity of fast and reliable unsupervised spike sorting. We present an algorithm that performs on-line real-time spike sorting for data streaming from a data acquisition board or in off-line mode from a WAV formatted file. Spike shapes are represented in a phase space according to the first and second derivatives of the signal trace. The output of the application is spike data format file in which the timing of spike occurrences are recorded by their inter-spike-intervals. It allows its application to the study of neuronal activity patterns in clinically recorded data.
