This may not be what you were expecting! If you give ''plot()'' only one input argument (''this_spk'' in this case) it will, by default, plot the **index** of each element against its **value**. | This may not be what you were expecting!

- | Let's unpack that statement so it is really clear: we have an array with five values here: the spike times of five spikes of neuron 11. ''plot()'' plots the value of the first element (''this_spk(1)'') at x-coordinate ''1'' (its index, i.e. position in the array), and so forth for the whole length of the array. It also connects the data points with a blue line. | + | Let's unpack that statement so it is really clear: we have an array with five values here: the spike times of four spikes of neuron 17.
