Dear NEST Users & Developers!
I would like to wish you all a happy Easter time and I hope you are all
well despite the current circumstances.
Since it is Easter Monday in some parts of the world, we will skip this
meeting. I am looking forward to
seeing you again in our next Open NEST Developer Video Conference on
I'm new at NEST, and I've been trying to recreate a neural system from my
work. This involves an IAF neuron which receives two different stimuli
(they would be represented by inputs to the neuron - increases in
post-synaptic potential). Since these are stimuli I control in my
experiments, I need to be able to control their dynamics as the simulation
progresses (for example, one of the stimuli has an exponentially larger
effect as time progresses).
Therefore, it's important for me to be able to control the dynamic of these
inputs. However, I have not been able to find a way to do this. One idea
I've had is to set the amplitude of a noise-generator to change according
to a function of my choosing (going back to the previous example, it would
be an exponential function). But this would require for this parameter to
be changed mid-simulation, or to be assigned to a function and interpreted
Is any of this possible? Or alternatively, do you know of another way of
