Significance Estimation of Joint-Events based on Shuffling and Resampling — •Gordon Pipa, Wolf Singer, and Sonja Grün — MPI for Brain Research, Frankfurt/Main, Germany

The ’unitary event’ analysis method [1] was designed to analyze multiple parallel spike trains for correlated activity. The null-hypothesis assumes Poissonian statistics, however experimental data may fail to be consistent with this assumption. Therefore we worked out a non-parametrical significance test that considers the original spike train structure of experimental data. The distribution for coincidences reflecting the null-hypothesis of independence, is generated by trial shuffling such that inter-trial correspondences are intensionally destroyed. This is realized by a Monte-Carlo procedure [2]. Using the newly developed method, we investigated how point processes with temporal structure (realized as γ-processes [3]) influence the detectability and significance estimation of coincident spike events.
