Example of the definition of two synaptic elements for an integrate and fire neuron using PyNEST. Here, the growth curve of the synaptic element is a Gaussian defined by three parameters: υ (the growth rate), ηz and ε (intersections with the x-axis). The growth dynamic depends on the electrical activity of the neuron modeled by the intracellular concentration of calcium.
