pulsepacket_generator


Name:
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.

Parameters:
 
pulse_times double - Times of the centers of pulses in ms
activity int - Number of spikes per pulse
sdev double - Standard deviation of spike times in each pulse in ms

Sends:
SpikeEvent  

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.
