aeif_psc_delta – Current-based adaptive exponential integrate-and-fire neuron model with delta synapse¶
Description¶
aeif_psc_delta is the adaptive exponential integrate and fire neuron according to Brette and Gerstner (2005), with postsynaptic currents in the form of delta spikes.
This implementation uses the embedded 4th order Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg solver with adaptive stepsize to integrate the differential equation.
The membrane potential is given by the following differential equation:
and
Here delta is the dirac delta function and k indexes incoming spikes. This is implemented such that V_m will be incremented/decremented by the value of J after a spike.
For implementation details see the aeif_models_implementation notebook.
