-The TIFGroup is a [[NeuronGroup]] which implements a group of conductance based neurons with exponentially decaying AMPA and GABA conductances. The model has an absolute refractory period and tries to implement the in every aspect to implement ​the conductance based neuron model used in [[http://​www.jneurosci.org/​content/​25/​46/​10786.short|Vogels and Abbott (2005)]]. It is used in at least one of our [[examples:​sim_coba_benchmark|examples]].+The TIFGroup is a [[NeuronGroup]] which implements a group of conductance based neurons with exponentially decaying AMPA and GABA conductances.

 +**Side remark:** In contrast to other neuron models in Auryn like for example the [[IFGroup]] the ''​evolve()''​ function of the [[TIFGroup]] does not use vector operations, but is implemented in a simple for-loop. In the particular case of absolute refractoriness this allows to save computation time when a neuron is refractory the integration of membrane variables can be skipped.

-TIFGroup implements the problably simples and fastest neuron model that comes with Auryn. ​
