2.7: Back to the Detector

    Now that you can see how the individual neuron integrates a given excitatory signal relative to leak/inhibition, it is important to put this into the larger perspective of the detection process. In this simulation, you'll see how a neuron can pick out a particular input pattern from a set of inputs, and also how it can have different patterns of responding depending on its parameters ("loose" or "strict").

    To run this exploration, go to Detector.
