pymuvr 1.3.3

Multi-unit Van Rossum spike train metric


A Python package for the fast calculation of Multi-unit Van Rossum neural spike train metrics, with the kernel-based algorithm described in Houghton and Kreuz, On the efficient calculation of Van Rossum distances (Network: Computation in Neural Systems, 2012, 23, 48-58). This package started out as a Python wrapping of the original C++ implementation given by the authors of the paper, and evolved from there with bugfixes and improvements.
