Analysis of Recorded Spike Trains

I am looking for references, papers, reports etc on the
data analysis techniques for single cell and multi cell
recordings of spike trains from the brain. For the single
cell stuff, I am particularly interested to know of any
papers that explain the application of mutual information
between the visual stimuli and the resulting spike trains?
But I would be interested in other numerical or graphical
statistical measures that are in use.

For multi-cell recordings, I am familar with the Konig (1994) 
paper on the analysis of data for synchronization and 
oscillations. Does anyone know of any other papers on 
different methods for measuring the correlation between cell 
assemblies, and how it changes with time?

thanks in advance for any comments posted/emailed, 



Konig,P. (1994) ``A method for the quantification of
   synchrony and oscillatory properties of neuronal activity''
   Jour. of Neuroscience Methods 54:31-37.
