Parameter: Spike W.F. #

Full name: Waveform # for spike analysis
Range: [ 0, 99 ]
Initial value: not set

Affects: all waveform spike analyses

This parameter chooses which waveform will be scanned for spikes (action potentials).

Apart from setting this parameter, you will also have to set up the waveform parameters for spike detection for the chosen waveform. These parameters are a part of the waveform parameter file associated with the waveform.

For some analyses, you will not only want to set up the spike detection parameters (threshold, hysteresis, discriminator), but also mark up the spike trains, so the program can differentiate between individual bursts of spiking activity on the waveform.

You can also set, in the waveform parameters for the chosen waveform, the "Single-unit data set #", then select the spikes for that single-unit using additional spike rejection parameters (spike width range, range of areas under spike). You can then also manually delete unwanted spikes. Only the spikes in the current single-unit data set for this waveform will be used in any analysis. Setting the "Single-unit data set #" to 0 will make the program revert to using all spikes selected by the three spike detection parameters above.
