Frequently, Fano Factor is calculated across time points: it is a measure of the variability in the spiking of a particular neuron. For example, interneurons will frequently have lower Fano Factor than principal neurons. As Bryan mentions in the comments, you may also be interested in the variance across trials, depending on the question that you are ...

I wasn't able to find the exact figure in the literature or in the webpages you linked, but the pages you link include a web page with references, including a PLOS paper from the University of Liege on tinnitus that is closely related to your current question and from a group affiliated to the same academic institution (Maudoux et al., 2012). This paper ...

In general, closely situated electrodes work well to eliminate environmental noise, at least when a differential amplifier is used. Environmental noise is a major problem in case of scalp-recorded signals, think of the electromagnetic distortions caused by electronical devices situated in the vicinity of your recordings. But also muscle artifacts are a ...

The paper that you link to cites as reference 32 this paper for the relevant section you quote: Lee, S., Kim, K., & Zhou, Z. J. (2010). Role of ACh-GABA cotransmission in detecting image motion and motion direction. Neuron, 68(6), 1159-1172. Importantly, they are contrasting between "co-release", where two different neurotransmitters are ...

Simply answer to the question: Yes, but without real evidence and sole speculative. From neuroscience perspective it may be possible that those people can self-induce waves in brain to sole affect visual cortex, so it may be possible and plausible but didn't encountered any research to back those claims. According to publication Migraine with visual aura ...

Brain Parcellation in Freesurfer is splitting images of the brain into their defined partitions, mapping the brain Brain Parcellation images from Eickhoff et al. (2018) Thyreau & Taki (2020) points out: The parcellation of the human cortex into meaningful anatomical units is a common step of various neuroimaging studies. There have been multiple ...
