This is the readme for the code for the paper:

London M, Roth A, Beeren L, Hausser M, Latham PE (2010) Sensitivity to
perturbations in vivo implies high noise and suggests rate coding in
cortex. Nature 466:123-7

The network code was supplied by Peter Latham and updated by Tom Morse
for compiling in a modern linux (tested with g++ 4.4.3) by simply
typing "make".  You can follow built-in help by running the executable
./theta1d without any arguments.

To run you can create a sample input file by typing:

./theta1d -s > sample_inputfile.txt

You can then edit sample_inputfile.txt as desired and then type

./theta1d sample_inputfile.txt

to run the model.  The provided sample takes 10 seconds to run and
should produce graphs such as under matlab/octave commands:

For population averaged rate for excitatory (blue) and inhibitory
cells (red):

load arate;
hold on


For the last second of voltage activity of a selected neuron:

load v;
