    Abstract

    We present a general event-driven algorithm for the efficient simulation of spiking neural networks. We focus in this paper on its application to self-organizing maps. Standard event-driven approaches to simulation can significantly reduce computational time, but only when network activity is relatively low. In this article, we propose several strategies to manage efficiently, large numbers of spiking events. The simulation scales well with the increase of the neural activity and is more biologically plausible than competing methods. Key-Words: - Event-driven simulation, spiking neurons, self-organizing maps.
