## Neurophysiological Point Process Data

### Description

`neuro`

is a matrix containing times of observed firing of a neuron in windows
of 250ms either side of the application of a stimulus to a human subject.
Each row of the matrix is a replication of the experiment and there were a
total of 469 replicates.

### Note

There are a lot of missing values in the matrix as different numbers of firings were observed in different replicates. The number of firings observed varied from 2 to 6.

### Source

The data were collected and kindly made available by Dr. S.J. Boniface of the Neurophysiology Unit at the Radcliffe Infirmary, Oxford.
