    % Draw the hidden layer nodes

            node[hidden neuron] (H-\name) at (\layersep,-\y cm) {};

    % Draw the output layer node
    \node[output neuron,pin={[pin edge={->}]right:Output}, right of=H-3] (O) {};

    % Connect every node in the input layer with every node in the
    % hidden layer.
    \foreach \source in {1,...,4}
        \foreach \dest in {1,...,5}

    very usefull, How i can create a neural networks with 2 hidden layer, as for example: 3-20-5-1a input layer-hidden layer-hidden layer-output layer? thx
