Table 2 Parameter values in Figs.  3 - 5 (unless otherwise specified)

From: Stable Control of Firing Rate Mean and Variance by Dual Homeostatic Mechanisms

Parameter Meaning Value
dt Euler timestep 0.01 s
\(\tau_{{{x}}}\) x homeostatic time constant 500 s
\(\tau_{g}\) g homeostatic time constant 50,000 s
\(\tau_{r}\) firing rate time constant 0.1 s
\(r_{{{x}}}\) x homeostasis target firing rate 20
\(r_{g}\) g homeostasis target firing rate 24
\(f_{{{x}}}\) x homeostasis control function \(f_{{{x}}}(r) = r\)
\(f_{g}\) g homeostasis control function \(f_{g}(r) = r^{2}\)
