Usage of simConfig.recordDipolesHNN

Post by jtajchman »

I'm fairly new to NetPyNE in general, and am trying to record the current dipole moment over time within my network, copying what HNN does. I see that there is a simConfig option called "recordDipolesHNN" which seems to be what I want to use, at least according to its name. There is also a separate option called "recordDipole" but I do not know what the difference between these methods are.

My questions are as follows:
1. How is recordDipolesHNN used? I have not found much documentation for this, nor any examples.
2. What is the difference between recordDipolesHNN and recordDipole?

the difference is regarding how the dipoles are obtained. For the option recordDipole, NetPyNE uses the external package LFPykit, whereas for recordDipolesHNN, the calculation is based on a mod file (dipole.mod). You may take a look in the example at ... cortex/mod

I hope this helps. Best,
