Fixed Spike Generator


Dear all,

What is the correct syntax to set up a fixed spike generator? I found the properties here:, but I not found the correct syntax. For exemple: nrp.dc_source, nrp.poisson, but for fixed spike generator? I think it is nrp.if_source, but the platform doesn’t accept it.
Thank you for the support.


Hi SimCop,

the right syntax is: nrp.fixed_frequency


Hi Eloy,
can we add the device syntax as well as how to feed it (input_neuron.rate /.frequency etc.) for all brain devices on the documentation page of the user manual ?


Hi Benedikt,

yes, we have to add this content to the documentation no doubt. Can you refer it to Francesca please? she is collecting suggestions for improving the documentation. Thanks.
