sinusoidal_gamma_generator


Name:
sinusoidal_gamma_generator - Generates sinusoidally modulated gamma  
spike trains.
Description:
 
sinusoidal_gamma_generator generates sinusoidally modulated gamma spike
trains. By default, each target of the generator will receive a different
spike train.

The instantaneous rate of the process is given by

f(t) = rate + amplitude sin ( 2 pi frequency t + phase * pi/180 )

Parameters:
 
The following parameters can be set in the status dictionary:

rate double - Mean firing rate in spikes/second, default: 0 s^-1
amplitude double - Firing rate modulation amplitude in spikes/second,
default: 0 s^-1
frequency double - Modulation frequency in Hz, default: 0 Hz
phase double - Modulation phase in degree [0-360], default: 0
order double - Gamma order (>= 1), default: 1

individual_spike_trains bool - See note below, default: true

Require:
HAVE_GSL  
Receives:
DataLoggingRequest  

Sends:
SpikeEvent  

Remarks:
 
- The gamma generator requires 0 <= amplitude <= rate.
- The state of the generator is reset on calibration.
- The generator does not support precise spike timing.
- You can use the multimeter to sample the rate of the generator.
- The generator will create different trains if run at different
temporal resolutions.

- Individual spike trains vs single spike train:
By default, the generator sends a different spike train to each of its
targets. If /individual_spike_trains is set to false using either
SetDefaults or CopyModel before a generator node is created, the generator
will send the same spike train to all of its targets.
