You don't want to look for "peaks".

In any neural-activation data,
the main thing to look for is
the descending trend that
correlates to TD E/I-

This isn't always detectable
because the data may correlate to
co-mingled 'information content'.

But, most often, one can 'regenerate'
the neural Topology be 'just' exploring
all the ways that one's data can, in fact,
be ordered in such 'descending' ways.

TD E/I-minimization is =that=
relaible as a generalized principle.

'Course, this's much easier to do
if the neural topological correlations
are not 'erased' [or never included in]
the data.
