  • Stimulus-selective neurons showed either the responsive or nonresponsive type of firing for a specific stimulus. The type was determined by the sign of β-coefficient in the GLM of each neuron. Stimulus-selective neurons with plus signs are responsive (i.e., high firing rates to a preferred stimulus), and the ones with minus signs are nonresponsive (i.e., low firing rates to a preferred stimulus) types.
