### Waiting times in cyclical HMMs: modeling neuronal refractoriness

Cyclical Hidden Markov models (HMMs) can be used to sort spikes. For example, in Herbst et al. (2008), wideband data is assumed to be generated by an HMM, where for most of the time the HMM is in the rest state, and with small probability jumps to the spike initiation state. Once it’s in the … More Waiting times in cyclical HMMs: modeling neuronal refractoriness
