This code contains the computational model included in Meijer et al., Cell Reports 2020, which reproduces some of the main experimental findings reported --most notably, the higher sensory response of secondary visual areas compared to that of primary visual areas for moderate visual contrast levels in mice. The model is based on a two-area spiking neural network with embedded short-term synaptic plasticity mechanisms.
