Sorting functional classes of evoked potentials by wavelets

Abstract

Evoked potentials (EPs) recorded within the primary sensory cortex of non-anesthetized rats vary considerably with each peripheral stimulation. We have previously shown that most of this variance reflects the shift of cortical activation between habituated and aroused states. Here we show that a method of matching the potential’s course by wavelet functions can reliably differentiate single EPs and may therefore, be used as a probe for indicating the current activation state of the cortex.
