Hello I am new to NEURON and am trying to understand what the weights in NetGUI represent. Could someone please explain this to me?

Thank you so much!

They are the weights associated with the NetCons that connect a presynaptic spike source to a postsynaptic target (e.g. event-driven synaptic mechanism). At a minimum, read about the NetCon class in the Programmer's Reference. Would be a good idea to also read chapter 10 of The NEURON Book and/or
Hines, M.L. and Carnevale, N.T.
Discrete event simulation in the NEURON environment.
Neurocomputing 58-60:1117-1122, 2004.
which is available from a link at
