Heitler, William J. (2007). DataView: A tutorial tool for data analysis. Template-based spike sorting and frequency analysis.The Journal of Undergraduate Neuroscience Education, 6(1): A1-A7. ISBN: 15442896DataView is a Windows program for viewing and analyzing digital data derived from analog signals using A/D acquisition systems. It is primarily designed for research neuroscientists, but its low (or zero) cost makes it a suitable tool for giving students hands-on experience of analysis techniques. It is supplied with many examples of pre-recorded data and also has facilities to allow tutors to use their own—or indeed their students'—experimental results as the dataset for analysis. This article illustrates the use of DataView with a brief tutorial on template-based spike sorting and frequency analysis. The DataView manual contains detailed instructions and sample datasets for a wide range of other analytical and data-manipulation techniques.
