Welcome to the Spike Train Analysis Toolkit wiki. This wiki is a repository for user tips, feedback, questions (FAQ), tutorials, etc. on the use of the STAToolkit. Please feel free to contribute new pages or modify existing ones so that this resource becomes as helpful to you—the users—as possible. To do so, you must first login, creating a user name if necessary.

If you have never contributed to a wiki, or are unfamiliar with DokuWiki syntax, you may want to look quickly at the basic syntax. If you'd rather just dive in, there are toolbar icons to simplify common syntax usage, and you'll have the chance to preview a page before saving the changes. Remember, in a wiki mistakes are easily changed.

This line will appear as “For additional help using the metric space method with auditory recordings, please see this tutorial.” You may then follow this new link, and hit the “Create this page” button.

Note that pages in this wiki are organized by namespaces (e.g., “usage” in the example above), which function similarly to directories. You may also create a new unlinked page, though this is discouraged, as it will be more difficult for users to find your page. However, if you'd like to do so, you may right-click on a namespace on the navigation tree to the left, and select “New Page Here”, or type the would-be URL into your browser (e.g.,


This wiki was made possible through the generous work of many developers (read more), and the contributions of users like you. Please add your citation(s) to our list of publications, or your project to our list of collaborations (if applicable).
