Wilson's model of the locust-flight central pattern generator implemented using leaky integrators: Input x connects to units yi (i=1,2,3,4) with weights vi, and units yl (l=1,2,3,4) connect to units yk (k=1,2,3,4) with weights wkl. For clarity, the self-connections of y2 and y3 are not shown, and the individual forward and recurrent weights are not labeled.

This tool is built from the MATLAB scripts for Tutorial on Neural Systems Modeling by Thomas J. Anastasio.
