poisson_generator_ps


Name:
poisson_generator_ps - simulate neuron firing with Poisson processes  
(with arbitrary dead time) statistics and exact timing
Description:
 

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).

Parameters:
 
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)

Sends:
SpikeEvent  

Remarks:
 
- This generator must be connected to all its targets using the
same synapse model. Failure to do so will only be detected at
runtime.
- This generator has only been validated in a very basic manner.
