synchronous_events_overlap
(sse1, sse2)[source]¶ Given two sequences of synchronous events (SSEs) sse1 and sse2, each consisting of a pool of pixel positions and associated synchronous events (see below), determines whether the two SSEs overlap.
The SSEs overlap if they are not equal and none of them is a superset of the other one but they are also not disjoint.
Both sse1 and sse2 must be provided as dictionaries of the type
{(i1, j1): S1, (i2, j2): S2, …, (iK, jK): SK},
where each i, j is an integer and each S is a set of neuron IDs.
Parameters:  sse1, sse2dict
Dictionaries of pixel positions (i, j) as keys and sets S of synchronous events as values.
Returns:  bool
True if sse1 and sse2 overlap.
