I'm interested in the difference between spike-triggered averaging and reverse correlation.
In some papers (i.e., Schwartz, Odelia, et al) I see the term 'Spike Triggered Averaging'. In others, (ie Ringach et al 2004) I see the term 'Reverse Correlation'. According to wikipedia, they are the same:
Spike-triggered averaging is also commonly referred to as “reverse correlation″ or “white-noise analysis”
I was wondering though: Is there a subtle difference between spike-triggered averaging and reverse correlation?
