Hi NEST users,
I have a pre- and post-synaptic spike train and I want to impose these spike trains onto a plastic synapse to see the weight development.
To this end, I thought of having 2 "parrot_neuron_ps" as pre- and post-synaptic neurons connected with the plastic synapse which uses AMPA receptor.
By doing this, NEST yields the following error: "NESTError: UnknownReceptorType in Connect_g_g_D_D: Receptor type 1 is not available in parrot_neuron_ps." which in my case Receptor type 1 is the AMPA receptor.
At the nest documentation about "parrot_neuron_ps" I found out that I can have the plastic synapse onto port 1 of the postsynaptic parrot neuron
which I hope it will solve the error with the receptor.
