Abstract

The simulation problem of very large fully asynchronous Spiking Neural Networks is considered in this paper. To this purpose, a preliminary accurate analysis of the latency time is made, applying classical modelling methods to single neurons. The latency characterization is then used to propose a simplified model, able to simulate large neural networks. On this basis, networks, with up to 100,000 neurons for more than 100,000 spikes, can be simulated in a quite short time with a simple MATLAB program. Plasticity algorithms are also applied to emulate interesting global effects as the Neuronal Group Selection.
