This package simulates synaptic background activity similar to in vivo measurements using a model of fluctuating synaptic conductances, and compares the simulations with analytic estimates. The steady-state membrane potential (Vm) distribution is calculated numerically and compared with the "extended" analytic expression provided in the reference (see this paper for details).
