topology::CreateLayer


Name:
topology::CreateLayer - create a spatial layer of nodes
Synopsis:
 
dict CreateLayer -> layer

Description:
The Topology module organizes neuronal networks in  
layers. A layer is a special type of subnet which contains information
about the spatial position of its nodes. There are three classes of
layers: grid-based layers, in which each element is placed at a
location in a regular grid; free layers, in which elements can be
placed arbitrarily in space; and random layers, where the elements are
distributed randomly throughout a region in space. Which kind of layer
this command creates depends on the elements in the supplied
specification dictionary.

Parameters:
 
dict - dictionary with layer specification
