How to attach synapses to artificial neuron

Post by YuaY » Thu Jul 17, 2008 7:27 am

Hi,
I used Network Builder GUI to build network of artificial neurons.
Is it possible to attach the synapses to those neurons? What should I do?

In NEURON, an artificial spiking neuron model is described by equations that govern its spontaneous activity (if it does anything spontaneously) and what it does in response to input events. It is not necessary, nor is it possible, to attach a synaptic mechanism to an artificial spiking neuron model. Just make it be the target of one or more NetCons, and it will respond to all events that are delivered by those NetCons. Please read
