The Glossary provides short definitions of HNN-specific vocabulary and general computational neuroscience concepts. If you think a term is missing, please consider creating a new issue or opening a pull request to add it.
Anatomical location that is further away from the soma. Distal drives refer to extrinsic connections to the distal dendrites of the cortical column, which often originate from indirect thalamic nuclei, as well as other cortical regions.
An exogenous source of excitatory action potentials that perturbs the cortical column network.
The “global” cell ID. A gid is assigned to each cell in the network as well as artificial drive cells. Global refers to the fact that the cell ID is unique even if the simulation is split across cores.
Anatomical location that is closer to the soma. Proximal drives refer to extrinsic connections to the proximal dendrites of the cortical column, which often originate from direct thalamic nuclei.
