ExtensionExtension

Neuron Firing Model Oscillator
Inherits from: UGen : AbstractFunction : Object

//SLUGens released under the GNU GPL as extensions for SuperCollider 3, by Nick Collins, http://composerprogrammer.com/index.html 

Description

Naive Euler ODE solver implementation of the FitzHugh-Nagumo neuronal 2-dimensional model for oscillatory firing.

du/dt= rateu*(u-0.3333*u^3 - w) dw/dt= ratew*(b0+b1*u - w)

All inputs can have .kr rate UGens plugged in.

Class Methods

*ar (reset: 0, rateu: 0.01, ratew: 0.01, b0: 1, b1: 1, initu: 0, initw: 0, mul: 1, add: 0)

Examples

//Can be very noisy, high pitched and aliases badly- ie great fun, but watch out for your ears, filter, try out odd param settings. I've turned all the amplitudes down in the following


//defaults, high pitched! WARNING
{Out.ar(0,Pan2.ar(0.05*FitzHughNagumo.ar(0,0.01,0.01,1,1),0.0))}.play

//updates too fast, nice noise
{Out.ar(0,Pan2.ar(0.02*FitzHughNagumo.ar(0,1,1,1,1),0.0))}.play

//modulate constants to mess with noise
{Out.ar(0,Pan2.ar(0.01*FitzHughNagumo.ar(0,1,1,LFNoise0.kr(1,0.48,0.5),LFNoise0.kr(1,0.9,1)),0.0))}.play
