poisson_generator_ps

Command: poisson_generator_ps


Sends
SpikeEvent

Description


The poisson_generator_ps generator simulates a neuron firing with Poisson
statistics (with dead time) ie exponentially distributed interspike
intervals plus constant dead time spike events have exact timing
(i.e. not binned).

Parameters

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

rate - mean firing rate. (double var)
dead_time - minimal time between two spikes. (double var)

Remarks

- This generator must be connected to all its targets using the
same synapse model. Failure to do so will only be detected at
runtime.
- This generator has only been validated in a very basic manner.
