Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Multi-unit recordings from the optic tectum of an awake pigeon displaying oscillatory behavior evoked by visual stimulus are highly non-stationary and contain a broad band of frequencies under a time-window analysis. Here we extend these observations by a non-linear dynamical analysis of these oscillatory signals (local fields potentials) in successive epochs during background activity and visual responses. Two numerical estimates have been obtained from the original data every 200 ms: (1) correlation dimension and (2) non-linear forecasting of the trajectories. Results from eight different recording sites analyzed are consistent and indicate, in the average, an increase in complexity of the signal during the oscillatory periods.
