Abstract

We propose a numerical method to learn maximum entropy (MaxEnt) distributions with spatio-temporal constraints from experimental spike trains. This is an extension of two papers, [10] and [4], which proposed the estimation of parameters where only spatial constraints were taken into account. The extension we propose allows one to properly handle memory effects in spike statistics, for large-sized neural networks. View Full-Text
