It calculates a (3rd gen) spiking neural net model. This means, time and space are incorporated into the calculation. Every single action potential is represented and its propagation along the axon with finite velocity is simulated.
The [Izhikevich](http://www.izhikevich.org/human_brain_simulation/Blue_Brain.htm#models of spiking neurons") neuron model is used to represent neurons.
neuro_edit incorporates also a 2nd gen linear discriminator neuron model. Combining a pool of Izhikevich neurons with a linear discriminator read out neuron, neuro_edit it is able to simulate Liquid State Machines.
To build neuro_edit, you need the following requirements:
In order to build the whole project, change into the cloned directory and say
or open the .pro file with Qt-Creator. If you don't have installed boost and QScintilla to the system's include and lib directories you'll need to give something like
INCLUDEPATH += /path/to/boost/inc /path/to/qscintilla/inc LIBS += /path/to/boost/lib /path/to/qscintilla/lib
