Network simulations of self-sustained activity in networks of adaptive exponential integrate and fire neurons

The aim of this project is to convert an original NEURON model written by Alain Destexhe, published in the following article:

Destexhe, A. (2009) Self-sustained asynchronous irregular states and Up/Down states in thalamic, cortical and thalamocortical networks of nonlinear integrate-and-fire neurons. Journal of Computational Neuroscience 27: 493-506. [arXiv preprint:]

from Hoc to PyNN. Using PyNN makes it possible to simulate the model using the NEST and Brian simulators, and using the FACETS / BrainScaleS neuromorphic hardware, as well as NEURON.

The project is also intended as a case study of converting a NEURON model to PyNN.
