Tutorial 2 : Making Hybrid Nets


Example of a hybrid network

Step 1. Define the types of cells
A. We need a class of cells that can supply afferent spikes.
B. We need a "motoneuron" or "M cell" class.
1. Specifying the anatomical and biophysical properties of the M cell class
2. Specifying what kinds of synapses can be attached to an M cell
3. Placing synapses on the M cell

Step 2. Create each cell in the network
A. We need a Network Builder
B. We need an instance of each of our three cell types.

Step 3. Connect the cells.
A. Network architecture
B. Parameters
Run a simulation and plot the input and output spike trains
