Code for information theoretic analysis

Many of our studies are based on information-theoretic analyses. Recent studies use Copula Methods developped by Robin Ince availablehere. Previously we relied on theibtb toolboxfor Matlab.Pyentropyis also an efficient Python package.

Auditory saliency map

The matlab code for the auditory saliency map, as well as some example sounds and data are availablehere.

See "Mechanisms for allocating auditory attention: An auditory saliency map." Kayser C et al Current Biology 15(21), 1943-1947, 2005, for details.

Naturalistic acoustic stimuli from Kayser et al Neuron '09

You can download the sequence of natural sounds used for our unit recordings and EEG studieshere.

Cat-Cam. The world from a cat's perspective

The video sequences used to analyse statistical regularities of natural scenes are available upon request. A short video segment can be foundhere.
