Complexity in Electrophysiological Dynamics

Participants: O. Pont, H. Yahia, B. Xu.

Action potentials play an important role in the dynamics of cell-cell communication and they are thus of key relevance in neural tissues. We show that typical real-world electrophysiological signals, with smooth deviations from harmonicity, are typically well described with just the first few terms and result in a rather compact, sparse representation. In particular, we have done an analysis of FitzHugh-Nagumo impulse trains; we have found that 3 anharmonic terms reconstruct better than an equivalent 8-term Fourier representation, with less than half the PSNR and no artifacts from Gibbs phenomenon.
