SpikingSynapse Class Reference
Inheritance diagram for SpikingSynapse:
Detailed DescriptionBase class of all spike transmitting synapses.
It implements the basic behaviour of spiking synapses: after some transmission delay the spike from the presynaptic neuron hits the synapse. If "a vesicle is released" the method preSpikeHit() is called which implements the actual effect of the spike.
After PSR_MULTIPLE_TAU time constants are elapsed the postsynaptic response has practically vanished and the synapse is put into a list of idle synapses and activated again if a spikes hits the synapse. This speeds up simulations with low firing rates considerably.
