bernoulli_connection – Static synapse with stochastic transmission

Description

Spikes are transmitted by bernoulli_synapse following a Bernoulli trial with success probability p_transmit. This synaptic mechanism was inspired by the results described in 1 of greater transmission probability for stronger excitatory connections and it was previously applied in 2 and [3].

bernoulli_synapse does not support any kind of plasticity. It simply stores the parameters target, weight, transmission probability, delay and receiver port for each connection.

Parameters

p_transmit

real

Transmission probability, must be between 0 and 1

Transmits

SpikeEvent, RateEvent, CurrentEvent, ConductanceEvent, DoubleDataEvent, DataLoggingRequest
