Thank you

Use the NetCon class's record() method (read about it here:

http://www.neuron.yale.edu/neuron/stati ... tml#record )

to count the number of spikes N that occur over an interval T. Frequency = N/T

Sir,

Can you please elaborate a little on how to use the record() method.

Is it possible to use this method to calculate the number of spikes generated in distinct time periods and not just the total number of spikes in the entire simulation?
