This 1D linear filter model generates a stimulus-modulated source of Poisson common input that drives units in a second stage. The second stage units simply combine the common input spikes with spikes from independent Poisson sources. This model was designed for testing spike train cross-correlation analyses and for educational exercises.
Additional parameters allow for a refractory period to be imposed on the spikes of unit c, and for the spikes of units 1 and 2 to be converted to bursts. An arbitrary number of second layer units can be defined. For detailed parameter descriptions, follow the link for the model class below.
