gap_junction – Synapse type for gap-junction connections


gap_junction is a connector to create gap junctions between pairs of neurons. Gap junctions are bidirectional connections. In order to create one accurate gap-junction connection between neurons i and j two NEST connections are required: For each created connection a second connection with the exact same parameters in the opposite direction is required. NEST provides the possibility to create both connections with a single call to Connect via the make_symmetric flag.

The value of the parameter delay is ignored for connections of type gap_junction.
