The red image is the step input. It can be adjusted from the spinner on the right side.

The blue line is the output of the dendrite after time constant calculation and filtering.

To Use

  1. Start the application. It will display the step input voltage in red and the dendrite compartment output in blue
  2. Adjust the Step input to the desired width and amplitude
  3. Examine the resulting dendrite output wave form
