A simple example can be run be run with

cd CSA
python gaussian.py

This should produce a view of the generated network as follows:

CSA example using PyNN

Another example illustrates the interaction of CSA and PyNN. The following code:

python pynn\_csa.py nest

will generate and run the example on NEST, while this:

python pynn\_csa.py neuroml2

will generate the network and save the structure in NeuroML 2 format.

For more details on how NeuroML 2 an PyNN work together, see here.
