ReadMe File for Matlab code that accompanies: JH Goldwyn, JT Rubinstein, E Shea-Brown (2012). A point process framework for modeling electrical stimulation of the auditory nerve Contents: * Current.m -- Defines a vector of (time-varying) electric current values used as input to the point process model * Parameterize.m -- Runs the parameterization routine described by Goldwyn et al. to compute the (unique) model parameter values associated with five response statistics provided by the user (Relative Spread, Chronaxie, Summation Time Constant, Threshold, Jitter) * RunPointProcess.m -- Simulates the point process model described by Goldwyn et al. User can define current input and model parameters through Current.m and Parameterize.m. Output of this script is the total number of spikes (SpikeCount), a vector of the sequence of spike times (SpikeTrain), and a histogram of interspike intervals. INSTRUCTIONS Execute RunPointProcess.m at the Matlab command line by typing "RunPointProcess" and you should see a figure like: This default run corresponds to the parameters in Table 1 and has the same parameters as used throughout the manuscript. Make desired changes to parameter values in the script. Modify the current input by altering the function Current.m
