Abstract:

THE FABRICATION OF MULTIELECTRODES FOR CHRONIC, SIMULTANEOUS RECORDING OF SINGLE NEURONS IN TISSUE CULTURES, PERIPHERAL NERVES, HIPPOCAMPUS, AND CEREBRAL CORTEX HAS PROGRESSED TO THE POINT WHERE THE VOLUME OF SINGLE-UNIT DATA IS NOW SIGNIFICANT. RECENT ADVANCES IN SIGNAL PROCESSING ARE BEING USED BY BTS TO DEVELOP IMPROVED METHODS OF EXTRACTING SINGLE-UNIT ACTIVITY. ADVANCES IN AREAS SUCH AS FEATURE EXTRACTION, ADAPTIVE FILTERING, CLUSTER ANALYSIS, AND SPIKE SORTING WITH AUTOMATIC TRACKING THE RESULT EXPECTED FROM OUR PHASE I EFFORTS WILL BE A NUMBER OF FEASIBLE DESIGNS FOR A MULTICHANNEL SPIKE SORTER THAT IS ABLE TO ADAPT TO TIME-VARYING SPIKE WAVEFORM PARAMETERS. INITIAL PHASE II EFFORTS WILL BE TO SELECT THE BEST DESIGN VIA COMPUTER MODELING OF THE DETECTION AND CLASSIFICATION ALGORITHMS FROM PHASE I RESEARCH. A HARDWARE PROTOTYPE WILL THEN BE BUILT AND TESTED USING REAL DATA.
