Source code for norse.torch.module.lif_box

"""A simplified version of the popular leaky integrate-and-fire neuron model that combines a :mod:`norse.torch.functional.leaky_integrator` with spike thresholds to produce events (spikes).
Compared to the :mod:`norse.torch.functional.lif` modules, this model leaves out the current term, making it computationally simpler but impossible to implement in physical systems because currents cannot "jump" in nature.
It is these sudden current jumps that gives the model its name, because the shift in current is instantaneous and can be drawn as "current boxes".

[docs]class LIFBoxCell(SNNCell): r"""Computes a single euler-integration step for a lif neuron-model without current terms. It takes as input the input current as generated by an arbitrary torch module or function. More specifically it implements one integration step of the following ODE .. math:: \dot{v} = 1/\tau_{\text{mem}} (v_{\text{leak}} - v + i) together with the jump condition .. math:: z = \Theta(v - v_{\text{th}}) and transition equations .. math:: v = (1-z) v + z v_{\text{reset}} Parameters: input_tensor (torch.Tensor): the input spikes at the current time step state (LIFBoxFeedForwardState): current state of the LIF neuron p (LIFBoxParameters): parameters of a leaky integrate and fire neuron dt (float): Integration timestep to use """
