We introduce an approach to counterfactual inference based on merging information from multiple datasets.
Another similarly important and challenging task is to quantify the causal influence of a treatment on a target in the presence of confounders.
In order to use the data gained with calcium imaging, it is necessary to extract individual cells and their activity from the recordings.
Neuronal assemblies, loosely defined as subsets of neurons with reoccurring spatio-temporally coordinated activation patterns, or "motifs", are thought to be building blocks of neural representations and information processing.
Cell assemblies, originally proposed by Donald Hebb (1949), are subsets of neurons firing in a temporally coordinated way that gives rise to repeated motifs supposed to underly neural representations and information processing.
