PyOpenWorm.connection module

class PyOpenWorm.connection.Connection(pre_cell=None, post_cell=None, number=None, syntype=None, synclass=None, termination=None, **kwargs)[source]

Bases: PyOpenWorm.biology.BiologyType

defined_augment()[source]

This fuction must return False if identifier_augment() would raise an IdentifierMissingException. Override it when defining a non-standard identifier for subclasses of DataObjects.

identifier_augment()[source]

Override this method to define an identifier in lieu of one explicity set.

One must also override defined_augment() to return True whenever this method could return a valid identifier. IdentifierMissingException should be raised if an identifier cannot be generated by this method.

Raises:
IdentifierMissingException
number

The weight of the connection

post_cell

The post-synaptic cell

pre_cell

The pre-synaptic cell

synclass

The kind of Neurotransmitter (if any) sent between pre_cell and post_cell

syntype

The kind of synaptic connection. ‘gapJunction’ indicates a gap junction and ‘send’ a chemical synapse

termination

Where the connection terminates. Inferred from type of post_cell at initialization
