poisson_generator_ps – Simulated neuron firing with Poisson process statistics - precise spike timing version with arbitrary dead times

Description

The poisson_generator_ps simulates a neuron firing with Poisson statistics (with dead time), i.e. exponentially distributed interspike intervals plus constant dead time, spike events have exact timing, i.e. they are not constrained to the simulation time grid.

Note

This generator must be connected to all its targets using the same synapse model. Failure to do so will only be detected at runtime.

Parameters

The following parameters appear in the element’s status dictionary:

rate

spikes/s

Mean firing rate

dead_time

ms

Minimal time between two spikes

origin

ms

Time origin for device timer

start

ms

Begin of device application with resp. to origin

stop

ms

End of device application with resp. to origin

Sends

SpikeEvent
