  1. The parameter estimation was performed using six different cost functions. Based on 10,000 simulated experiments, the median, the mean, the standard deviation (SD) and the root-mean-square deviation (RMSD) of the estimated τ were estimated (true value: 3 ms). The optimal result for each measure, which is the least biased median or mean and the smallest SD or RMSD, is shown in bold
