Model-Free Estimation of Tuning Curves and Their Attentional Modulation, Based on Sparse and Noisy Data
A) Layout is similar to Fig 5B. Each bar from there was split into two, depending on if a considered feature pair was judged significantly different (blue) or not (green) when evaluated with the direct method. The panel illustrates a strong tendency to find a significant effect with either both the direct method and all nine models, or with neither the direct method and none of the models. B) z-scored quantitative differences between direct and fitted method’s feature values is less than one standard deviation for almost all features independent of the model indicating a considerable quantitative agreement between the methods. Solid lines in violines mark 2.5%, 50% and 97.5% quantiles. Color code and model abbreviations are as in Figs 3 and 5.
