A Bayesian restoration of an ion channel signal
Abstract:We present a Bayesian method of ion channel analysis and apply it to a simulated data set. An alternating renewal process prior is assigned to the signal, and an autoregressive process is fitted to the noise. After choosing model hyperconstants to yield ‘uninformative’ priors on the parameters, the joint posterior distribution is computed by using the reversible jump Markov chain Monte Carlo method. A novel form of simulated tempering is used to improve the mixing of the original sampler.
