Interactions with other pipelines

because spike_analysis incorporates the sorted_neurons table (f.e. unit_IDs and site_IDs) into behavior and ephys data, it is used as a first step in all ephys analysis.

Outputs in Y:\Projects\project\ephys\version:

File Info
population_monkey_session.mat spike data sorted by unit for each session
sites_monkey_session.mat LFP data sorted by site for each session
by_block_monkey_session.mat body signals sorted by block for each session
Mon_sorted_neurons.xls copies of the used sorted neurons tables from dropbox
keys_Monkey.mat copy of the keys used when running ph_initiation
tuning_table_combined.mat Anova results stored in a table
tuning_table_combined_CI.mat Anova results restructured according to contra/ipsi definitions
tuning_table_combined.xls simplified excel table
spike_shapes Spike shapes, firing rates over time, and ISI plots for re-assessing spike sorting

The three main files come in a specific data structure, which contain the same fields except for the respective data:

  • by_block(body signals) - only trial information and body signals
  • sites (LFP) - additional site information and LFP, no body signals
  • population (spikes) - additional unit information and spike_arrival times, no LFP, no body signals

Trial structure subfields (By_block files)
