Parameter: Y-axis cycle offset


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

Affects: W.F. activity start & stop time analysis

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. Note that this offset does not affect the calculation of the coordinate, so it is possible to get negative points plotted.
