Functions to simulate Poisson distributed responses relative to a baseline and compute achieved significance level and powers for tests on the simulated responses. These functions were used to perform the calculations in the paper by Steinmetz & Thorp (2013).

Index: calcNumRejects Calculate number of cases rejected in grouped Poisson responses. catEffectBootAdaptor Adaptor to use a statistic calculating function with boot functions. compExclusionFraction Computes fraction of simulated cells, with Poisson responses to background and varying rates to different categories, which will have an effect of category but be excluded by pre-testing. compPowerCatSelectivity Compute number of simulated neurons with a significant effect of category using a bootstrapped F-ratio test. compPowerGeneralRespDetection Perform repeated simulations of grouped responses, where all groups differ from baseline and determine number significant. compPowerRespDetection Perform repeated simulations of grouped responses, where some groups differ from baseline and determine number significant. compRejectionFraction Compute rejection fraction for sequential tests. simCatResp Simulate grouped Poisson responses. simNormCatResp Simulate grouped responses which are Normally distributed. testCatEffectBoot Test for an effect of category using bootstrapping.
This package provides a set of functions for simulating grouped responses and testing them for significant deviations from baseline. This is primarily of use for computing power of different testing methods.
The highest level functions are
compPowerRespDetection which will perform repeated simulation
and testing, determining the number of simulations which produce significant results.
The example for the
compPowerRespDetection shows code to generate
the data in figure 4 of Steinmetz & Thorp 2013 and the example for
compPowerCatSelectivity shows code to generate figure 5.
