iaf_cond_exp_sfa_rr is an iaf_cond_exp_sfa_rr i.e. an implementation of a
spiking neuron using IAF dynamics with conductance-based synapses
with additional spike-frequency adaptation and relative refractory
mechanisms as described in Dayan+Abbott 2001 page 166.

As for the iaf_cond_exp_sfa_rr Incoming spike events induce a post-synaptic
change of conductance modelled by an exponential function. The
exponential function is normalised such that an event of weight 1.0
results in a peak current of 1 nS.

Outgoing spike events induce a change of the adaptation and relative
refractory conductances by q_sfa and q_rr respectively. Otherwise
these conductances decay exponentially with time constants tau_sfa
and tau_rr respectively.
