## < unit >

Theunitobject defines a stochastic spike train that is the combination of spikes from (1) a common source and (2) an independent homogeneous Poisson process.

<unit> name unit1 # This name can be used in the .rsp file rate 20.0 (spk/s) # Mean rate of indepedent Poisson process # The following parameters determined the probability of including spikes # from the common source, and at what time those spikes are placed. A delay # and a spread can be specified, which allow any spike that is included # to be placed with a time lag and at a random time within the window # defined by 'spread_c'. prob_c 0.2 (prob) # Probability of taking a spike from common source delay_c 0.002 (s) # Delay added to spikes from common source spread_c 0.000 (s) # Window for uniform placement of common spike # The following parameters allow each spike to be transformed into a burst burst_dur 0.000 (s) # Duration of burst burst_prob 0.25 (prob) # Probability of a spike at each sampling time # during a burst </spike_gen>
