Sorted neurons excel table

Find/create the electrode depth file corresponding to your monkey in the following location: C:\Users\username\Dropbox\DAG\phys\Monkey_phys_dpz\Mon_sorted_neurons.xlsx (replace username with your username, Monkey with the monkey's name and Mon with the first three letters of the monkey's name).

There are two main sheets in this excel file:

  • automatic_sorting
  • final_sorting

The idea is, that a large part of the information can be updated automatically (see…), while some information has to be added manually in the final_sorting sheet. For both sheets, each line represents one unit recorded in one block (and run) AND/OR the corresponding LFP site

Automaticly created entries

Monkey Session Date Run Block Chan z Unit N_spk Neuron_ID Site_ID Times_same_unit

  • Monkey: monkey initials (first 3 letters)
  • Session: A session counter (irrelevant, but helpful for browsing)
  • Date: Date of recording
  • Run: Corresponding behavioral run
  • Block: ephys recording block
  • Chan: electrode number (channel)
  • z: Electrode depth (from guide tube tip) - taken from electrode depth file
  • Unit: sortcode assigned to this cell (a=first,b=second,…)
  • N_spk: Total spike count
  • Neuron_ID: Cell identifier (the same cell can be recorded in several blocks !)
  • Site_ID: LFP site identifier (Based on electorde depth, same site can be recorded in different blocks and at the same time with different units)
  • Times_same_unit: For identifying unique units

Manually added entries
