Timing and expectation of reward

Code for the model described in:

Vitay, J. and Hamker, F. (2014). Timing and expectation of reward: a neuro-computational model of the afferents to the ventral tegmental area. Frontiers in Neurorobotics 8(4), doi:10.3389/fnbot.2014.00004

Run the code

The code currently works with ANNarchy 4.5.3 https://bitbucket.org/annarchy/annarchy.

To display the main figures of the article, simply run:

python GenerateFigures.py

Content

  • GenerateFigures.py: main script to generate the figures.
  • PlotDopamine.py: generates only the figure for dopamine.
  • TimingNetwork.py: definition of the network.
  • NeuronDefinition.py: definition of the neurons.
  • SynapseDefinition.py: definition of the synapses.
  • ConnectorDefinition.py: definition of the custom connection patterns.
  • TrialDefinition.py: definition of the trial procedures.
