Abstract
The mathematical foundations for describing a discrete series of events such as a spike train are presented by way of a point process theoretic approach. Various significance tests and empirical descriptors are discussed. These may be used in fitting a model to spike train data. The application of these techniques to the single unit, spontaneous activity from peripheral semicircular canal units in the pigeon is demonstrated as an example.
