Abstract

This paper describes improvements to the theory of velocity selective recording (VSR) of neural signals. Action potentials are classified and differentiated based on their conduction velocities which can be calculated from concurrent neural recordings taking at different locations on a nerve. Existing work has focussed primarily on electrically evoked compound action potentials (CAPs) where only a single evoked response per velocity is recorded. This paper extends the theory of VSR to naturally occurring neural signals recorded from rat and attempts to identify the level of activity (firing rates) within particular velocity ranges.
