When Python is the interpreter, what is a good
design for the interface to the basic NEURON
concepts.

NetStim and NetCon

Post by anandhupresannan » Mon Mar 09, 2020 1:15 am

Hi,

In my model I am using NetCon for connecting neurons. I have some doubts related to it. Could you please clarify it.

1) In NetCon can we pass array elements (time of spike) as a source variable

2) What kind of output is generated by NetStim? Is the NetStim output is stored in any global variable so we can look into the generated output.

Thank You.

No, but you would have discovered this fact by reading the Programmer's Reference documentation of the NetCon class. Presumably you have some precalculated spike times that you would like to use. Download and expand the gzipped tar file of NEURON's source code, then look at the files nrn/share/nrn/examples/nrniv/netcon/vecevent*
What kind of output is generated by NetStim?
Events.
Is the NetStim output is stored in any global variable so we can look into the generated output.
Read the documentation of the NetCon class's record() method.
