Command: ppd_sup_generator


The ppd_sup_generator generator simulates the pooled spike train of a
population of neurons firing independently with Poisson process with dead
time statistics.
The rate parameter can also be sine-modulated. The generator does not
initialize to equilibrium in this case initial transients might occur.


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

rate double - mean firing rate of the component processes default: 0 s^-1
dead_time double - minimal time between two spikes of the component processes default:
0 ms
n_proc long - number of superimposed independent component processes default: 1
frequency double - rate modulation frequency default: 0 Hz
relative_amplitude double - relative rate modulation amplitude default: 0
