Wilson-Cowan Delayed Nuron Network Model 

written by Colin F. C. Thomson

The Wilson-Cowan Delayed Neuron Network Model compares the Wilson-Cowan equations for network dynamics with a network of excitatory and inhibitory neurons. In this version of the Wilson-Cowan model, the differential equations have two different delays to represent the interaction between the excitatory and inhibitory populations of neurons. The neurons fire based on a weighted random number generator, and the activity of each population can be compared directly to the activity levels predicted by the Wilson-Cowan model.

The Wilson-Cowan Delayed Neuron Network Model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.   Double clicking the jar file will run the program if Java is installed.  You can modify this simulation if you have EJS installed by right-clicking within the map and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item.
