||The xml files provided here implement a network of excitatory and inhibitory spiking neurons, governed by either Hodgkin-Huxley or quadratic integrate-and-fire dynamical equations. The code is used to demonstrate the capabilities of the KInNeSS software package for simulation of networks of spiking neurons. The simulation protocol used here is meant to facilitate the comparison of KInNeSS with other simulators reviewed in <a href="http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s10827-007-0038-6">Brette et al. (2007)</a>. See the associated paper "Versace et al. (2008) KInNeSS : a modular framework for computational neuroscience." for an extensive description of KInNeSS .
