I've been trying to insert normally distributed noise onto my cells via IClamp, but the amp can only be set to one number/integer/float. I have a vector of say 1x1000 (1 per ms) that I want to set as the amp value. I guess one way would be to make a 1000 instances of the IClamp set at each time point, but that seems rather brutish.

Code: Select all

```
def Insert_Noise(self, noise_mean, noise_std_dev):
noise_mean, noise_std_dev = 1, 0.5
self.noise_list = []
for idx1 in range(self.N):
t_list = np.arange(0,self.stop_time,h.dt)
noise_current = np.random.normal(noise_mean, noise_std_dev, len(t_list))
noise_current_vector = h.Vector()
noise_current_vector.from_python(noise_current)
noise_input = h.IClamp(0.5, sec = self.cells[idx1].soma)
noise_input.delay = 0
noise_input.dur = 1e9
#noise_input.amp = 0.1#noise_current_vector
noise_current_vector.play(noise_input.amp, t_list, True)
self.noise_list.append(noise_input)
```

If there is another solution I would be happy to pursue it. I would also be happy with some guidance/pointers on where to look/how I could translate the hoc code into a python format. I have access to the NEURON book as well.

Thanks in advance!
