There is an increasing demand for a computationally efficient and accurate point process filter solution for real-time decoding of population spiking activity in multidimensional spaces. Real-time tools for neural data analysis, specifically real-time neural decoding solutions open doors for developing experiments in a closed-loop setting and more versatile brain-machine interfaces. Over the past decade, the point process filter has been successfully applied in the decoding of behavioral and biological signals using spiking activity of an ensemble of cells; however, the filter solution is computationally expensive in multi-dimensional filtering problems. Here, we propose an approximate filter solution for a general point-process filter problem when the conditional intensity of a cell's spiking activity is characterized using a Mixture of Gaussians. We propose the filter solution for a broader class of point process observation called marked point-process, which encompasses both clustered —mainly, called sorted— and clusterless —generally called unsorted or raw— spiking activity. We assume that the posterior distribution on each filtering time-step can be approximated using a Gaussian Mixture Model and propose a computationally ...Continue Reading
