gamma_sup_generator

Command: gamma_sup_generator


Description


The gamma_sup_generator generator simulates the pooled spike train of a
population of neurons firing independently with gamma process statistics.

Parameters

The following parameters appear in the element's status dictionary:

rate double - mean firing rate of the component processes default: 0 s^-1
gamma_shape long - shape paramter of component gamma processes default: 1
n_proc long - number of superimposed independent component processes default: 1
