poisson_generator_ps - simulate neuron firing with Poisson processesDescription:
(with arbitrary dead time) statistics and exact timing
The poisson_generator_ps generator simulates a neuron firing with Poisson
statistics (with dead time), ie, exponentially distributed interspike
intervals plus constant dead time, spike events have exact timing
(i.e. not binned).
The following parameters appear in the element's status dictionary:
rate - mean firing rate. (double, var)
dead_time - minimal time between two spikes. (double, var)
- This generator must be connected to all its targets using the
same synapse model. Failure to do so will only be detected at
- This generator has only been validated in a very basic manner.
