Abstract:

This work applied methods from computational topology to understand the behavior of populations of neurons in the Macaque primary visual cortex using embedded electrode arrays. The methods were additionally adapted to test the behavior of technology produced by Irvine Sensors, in which it is hoped to construct an artificial visual pathway. The results obtained demonstrated the presence of strong correlations of a particular kind in the electrode array data.
