Cortical microcircuit model

This is a PyNEST implementation of the cortical microcircuit model by Potjans and Diesmann [1].

Here you can inspect all files belonging to this example:

  • README: documentation of this microcircuit model implementation and its usage

  • an example script to try out the microcircuit

  • the main Network class with functions to build and simulate the network

  • helper functions for network construction, simulation and evaluation

  • network and neuron parameters

  • parameters for optional external stimulation

  • simulation parameters

  • reference_data: reference data and figures obtained by executing with default parameters
