Local field potential (LFP) recordings have become an important tool to study the activity of populations of neurons. The functional activity of LFPs is usually compared with the activity of neighboring single spike neurons with sampling rates much higher than those of the continuous field potential channel (5 kHz). However, comparison of these signals generated with the lower sampling rate technique is important.
