Spyke Viewer is a multi-platform GUI application for navigating, analyzing and visualizing electrophysiological datasets. It is based on the Neo framework, which enables it to load a wide variety of data formats used in electrophysiology. At its core, Spyke Viewer includes functionality for navigating Neo object hierarchies and performing operations on them.
A central design goal of Spyke Viewer is flexibility. For this purpose, it includes an embedded Python console and a plugin system. It comes with a variety of plugins implementing common neuroscientific analyses and plots (e.g. rasterplot, peristimulus time histogram, correlogram and signal plot). Plugins can be easily created and modified using the integrated Python editor or external editors.
