Represent images/movies in NEURON simulator

Post by vogdb »

Hello! I just wanted to double check before creating my own wheel. Is there a library/tool that allow to represent images/movies in NEURON simulator? For example take an image (28x28) and represent it as a grid of NetStim (28x28) where each NetStim corresponds to a single image pixel.

Read about the PlotShape class's hinton() method, which is effective but not fancy. Warning: NetStim doesn't have a variable that can be used by PlotShape.hinton()

Thank you Ted for such quick response. I rather meant taking an image, and present it to my neural circuit model. Like a small retina, if saying very basic.
I've looked through ModelDB and found something related like Corem simulator or Virtual Retina but they designed for other simulators like Nest.
