### command line for "mod" or "rem"?

This post may win the "most pedestrian" award. I'd like to add a curve to a plot of the form f(mod(t,period)) and I don't see a command equivalent to "mod" (or "rem") in the programmer's reference. The following works as a substitute: atan2(sin(t*2*PI/period),cos(t*2*PI/period)) but that is a lot to...

### Re: Modeling Cortex input as Poisson Process

Ted, dperakis: If you have N poisson processes each with mean firing rate alpha, and you aggregate all the events (i.e. spikes) into a single list, it will be as if you had a single poisson process with mean firing rate N*alpha. The Poisson process is unusual in this regard. Why not take advantage o...

The Binomial and Negative Binomial distributions are two closely related discrete distributions. (see e.g. http://mathworld.wolfram.com/BinomialDistribution.html and http://mathwo...
