Figure 4D confusing.

Posted by mdranias on 07 Apr 2012 at 20:41 GMT

Cat3 seems to not have the response to a second stimulus (Figure 4D).
But on p.5 it seems to say it should: "In all experiments, the classifiers could retrieve the information about the first stimulus in the sequence, not only in the on- or off responses to that stimulus (i.e., up to 200 ms after its onset), but also in the responses to a later stimulus in the sequence"

All performance results for cat 3 in Figure 4D are far above chance level during the on-response (between 200 ms and 300 ms after the onset of the 1st letter) and off-response (between 300 ms and 400 ms after the onset of the 1st letter) to the 2nd letter in the sequence.

Therefore, the statement in the text is fine.

Remark: As stated in the caption of Figure 4D it doesn't show neural responses, but classification performance.
