We provide matlab- and winBUGS-based software that estimate the learning curve and learning trial of a single subject or a population of subjects by analyzing behavioral data obtained in a learning experiment. The learning curve characterizes the dynamics of the learning process as a function of trial number and is plotted along with its upper and lower 95% confidence bounds. The learning trial is defined as the first trial on which there is reasonable certainty ( 0.95) that for the remainder of the experiment the subject performs better than chance.
This web site contains illustrations and Matlab code for analysis of within-and between-trials dynamics of spiking activity from multiple spike trains using state-space generalized linear models as described in the paper.
This software is actively being developed and is currently only available as a demo version.
Matlab code for identifying Granger causality between multiple neural spike train data is provided
