This simulation script reproduces Figure 2 in the paper (implemented as an
Ipython Notebook).

If you do not have a GPU change the line in cell 2 in the notebook from

theano.config.openmp = True


theano.config.openmp = False

When you execute all cells in the notebook you will see a panel
similar to Figure 2 in the paper:
