Circuit model of the granular layer representing a one-dimensional array of single-compartmental granule cells (grcs) and Golgi cells (Gocs). This paper examines the effects of feedback inhibition (grc -> Goc -> grc) versus feedforward inhibition (mossy fibre -> Goc -> grc) on synchronization and oscillatory behaviour.

include defaults 

The function "make_Golgi_cell_array" creates {length} Golgi cells,
named /granule_cell_layer/Golgi_cell [0] 
   to /granule_cell_layer/Golgi_cell [{length} - 1].
Each Golgi cell is a copy of the Golgi cell described in Golg1M0.p.
A spikegen object is added to the soma.
