pulsepacket_generator – Generate sequence of Gaussian pulse packets

Description

The pulsepacket_generator produces a spike train contains Gaussian pulse packets centered about given times. A Gaussian pulse packet is a given number of spikes with normal distributed random displacements from the center time of the pulse. It resembles the output of synfire groups of neurons.

Remarks:

  • All targets receive identical spike trains.

  • New pulse packets are generated when activity or sdev are changed.

  • Gaussian pulse are independently generated for each given pulse-center time.

  • Both standard deviation and number of spikes may be set at any time. Pulses are then re-generated with the new values.

Parameters
