Laminar connectivity matrix simulation (Weiler et al 2008)

A routine that simulates the flow of activity within and across laminar levels in the local pyramidal neuron network, based on a connectivity matrix (W) measured by laser scanning photostimulation in mouse somatic motor cortex, and a very simple neural network simulation.
