Resumo

Directed information transfer measures are increasingly being employed in modeling neural system behavior due to their model-free approach, applicability to nonlinear and stochastic signals, and the potential to integrate repetitions of an experiment. Intracellular physiological recordings of graded synaptic potentials provide a number of additional challenges compared to spike signals due to non-stationary behaviour generated through extrinsic processes. We therefore propose a method to overcome this difficulty by using a preprocessing step based on Singular Spectrum Analysis (SSA) to remove nonlinear trends and discontinuities. We apply the method to intracellular recordings of synaptic responses of identified motor neurons evoked by stimulation of a proprioceptor that monitors limb position in leg of the desert locust. We then apply normalized delayed transfer entropy measures to neural responses evoked by displacements of the proprioceptor, the femoral chordotonal organ, that contains sensory neurones that monitor movements about the femoral-tibial joint. We then determine the consistency of responses within an individual recording of an identified motor neuron in a single animal, between repetitions of the same experiment in an identified motor neurons in the same animal and in repetitions of the same experiment from the same identified motor neuron in different animals. We found that delayed transfer entropy measures were consistent for a given identified neuron within and between animals and that they predict neural connectivity for the fast extensor tibiae motor neuron.
