Example: IF_curve_LIFΒΆ

Input-Frequency curve of a IF model. Network: 1000 unconnected integrate-and-fire neurons (leaky IF) with an input parameter v0. The input is set differently for each neuron.

dv/dt = (v0 - v) / tau : volt (unless refractory)

group = NeuronGroup(n, eqs, threshold='v > 10*mV', reset='v = 0*mV',

group.v0 = '20*mV * i / (n-1)'
