The Hoverfly Vision group (in conjunction with a number of other labs here at Flinders) have been awarded a Strategic Project / Capacity-Building Research Grant by our College of Medicine and Public Health. The funding will be used to support the development of software that can automatically perform spike sorting on extracellular recordings.
This is great news, as it means we won't be restricted to using the kind of spike sorting provided by the software systems we already have. We'll be able to set up a spike-sorting approach that best suits our data, and that of the other labs on the grant.
We already have a basis for the code, in the form of an excellent spike sorting program written by Dr Lukasz Wiklendt here at Flinders (screen cap below), and I've started to look into ways to extend it. So this will be the main task keeping me busy for the foreseeable future!
