Parameter: Burst cycle offset

Full name: Cycle error offset for burst duration graph
Units: sec or per
Range: [ -2 gp, 2 gp ]
Initial value: 0 p

Affects: W.F. activity burst or spike train duration vs cycle duration

This parameter effectively time-shifts the cycles for the purpose of determining in which cycle a particular burst of activity or spike train falls. This allows more reliable results in borderline cases. For example, if a burst usually starts somewhat after the start of the cycle, but starts a bit early for a few cycles, you can select a negative offset of a few milliseconds so that these few bursts will properly be associated with the cycles in which they occur, even though they start a few milliseconds before the start of their associated cycles. Similarly, a positive offset can be used if a few bursts end slightly after the end of the cycle in which they occur.
