Bug in plasticity option

Post by theiera »

Hello everybody,

I was experimenting with the STDP plasticity and I found out it does not work in Netpyne.
The problem is simple:
to activate the plasticity in the Documentation of "Connectivity Rules" is written:
"plasticity (optional) - Plasticity mechanism to use for this connections."

I could trace in the code that the correct keyword is "plast" see line 957 of network.py.

However, using the correct keyword I face the problem that the h.STDP mechanism is not available.
Is this a default NEURON mod file or should I get it somewhere?
I could find the stdp.mod file here:
but this mod provides the "POINT_PROCESS ExpSynSTDP".

Any help would be very appreciated.

Best regards,

You can find the stdp.mod file here: https://github.com/Neurosim-lab/netpyne ... m/stdp.mod
