Abstract

A nerve signal, to which white noise was added, and monopolar and bipolar recordings of this signal were simulated. As a measure for nerve activity both signals were integrated (NAmon and NAbip). The bipolar signal was rectified before integration. NAmon appeared to be a linear measure for nerve activity while NAbip underestimated it at high firing rates. Furthermore NAmon was less sensitive to noise than NAbip. It was therefore concluded that the integrated non-rectified monopolar recording of a nerve signal is a better measure for the nerve activity than the integrated rectified bipolar recording.
