Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
These data contain activity (in form of action potentials) of single retinal axons recorded in the optic tract of mouse. Mice were able to run on rotating wheel. Running speed was recorded simultaneously. Mice were presented with full-field, drifting, sinusoidal gratings (“gratings”), darkness (“dark”), black and white squares on gray background (“noise”), or full-field screen inverting between black and white at fast rates ("flickers").
