|PREP||awake, fixation, discrimination|
|DATA TYPE||extracellular spike times|
paired single units on one electrode
|CELL TYPE||V5/MT cell|
For examples of no-variance control data for paired recordings, see data set nsa2012.1.
The stimulus was a sparse, dynamic random dot pattern lasting for typically 2 seconds. A full description of the stimulus is provided in the papers cited below in Electrophysiological Methods.
The number of trials varies across data files. Trials were taken in blocks, and some data files contain several blocks of trials. Trial blocks that are next to each other in a data file may have been separated in time during a recording session by more than a typical inter-trial epoch. The original data files would have to be consulted to determine the exact time at which any trial or block of trials began relative to other trials.
