**Name:**

iaf_cond_exp_sfa_rr - Simple conductance based leaky integrate-and-fire

neuron model.

**Description:**

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.
