Description
The Topology module organizes neuronal networks in
layers. A layer is a special type of subnet which contains information
about the spatial position of its nodes. There are three classes of
layers: grid-based layers in which each element is placed at a
location in a regular grid; free layers in which elements can be
placed arbitrarily in space; and random layers where the elements are
distributed randomly throughout a region in space. Which kind of layer
this command creates depends on the elements in the supplied
specification dictionary.
