The current ability to record neural activity within the brains of mammals has led to the production of a large body of experimental data. The analysis and comprehension of this data is key to the understanding of many basic brains functions, for example learning and memory.<div></div> The main constituent of this data is multi-dimensional spike train recordings. As the analysis of these datasets, by traditional means, becomes more complex and time consuming the need for better methods of data analysis increases.<div></div> This paper presents an innovative method for analysis of the relationships within large multi-dimensional spike train datasets. This method, called the ?Correlation Grid,? is based on the Information Visualisation principles; overview the data, filter and zoom the data and obtain details-on-demand . The features of the Correlation Grid are described, including filtering and statistical sorting methods.
