We tested the capacity of the most discriminative single sensor (selected separately for each subject) to predict the Si category, using linear support vector machines (SVM) with a single feature. The accuracy of this univariate classifier peaked at 47.4 ± 1.3% in cross-validation (red trace). (When using a nearest-mean univariate classifier rather than a univariate SVM, accuracy peaked at 45.6 ± 1.9%.) We constructed independent null distributions at each time bin by repeating this procedure 100 times with randomly shuffled category labels. At 200 ms post-stimulus, the median of the null distribution was 37.0% accuracy (greater than 1/3rd due to allowing the best sensor for each subject), while the 95th percentile of the null distribution was 38.6%. Blue line shown is multivariate SVM performance, from Figure 3A, for comparison.
