Simplification of detailed models


Who wants to work on neuron simplification?
To port the detailed circuit onto neuromorphic hardware or point-neuron networks (e.g. nest) we have to simplify the cell models.
I can provide synaptic correction factors to reduce the effect of dendritic filtering.
We could then use (spike) input/output traces for various cells in our network, optimize point neuron models (IF, GIF, …) and compare spike-train similarity.
We might even be able to directly compare these models running on Spikey and SpiNNaker.


Yes, I would like to work on this. I have a couple of other hackathon projects I’d like to work on, so it might be helpful to organise the time slots in advance.
