Comparison of read-out performance for bursts versus isolated spikes. A burst event was defined by a silent period of 20 ms followed by at least 2 spikes with an interspike interval of < 10 ms. All spikes were thus labeled as either burst spikes or isolated spikes. The plot below shows the read-out performance for SUA (dark gray) or cMUA (light gray) for all spikes, spike bursts or isolated spikes. For spike bursts, we still counted the number of spikes in each bin.


signal = SUA (dark gray), cMUA (light gray)
Time interval = [100;300)
Bin size = 50 ms
Number of sites = 128
