We supply Matlab code to create 'stability-optimised circuits'. These networks can give rise to rich neural activity transients that resemble primary motor cortex recordings in monkeys during reaching. We also supply code that allows one to learn new network outputs by changing the input-output gain of neurons in a stability-optimised network. Our code recreates the main results of Figure 1 in our related publication.
