Actually I want to call a particular event to occur continuously at frequent intervals of time (consider it as poission i.e at poisson intervals). But I dont know how to call a timer at particular time intervals continuously with different set of timer properties.

Why not just generate a random number and pass it in to the pause()
command. Then you woudn't need a timer. Every time though the loop
(say, over 1000 events), you'd be pausing for a different time.

perhaps you can use poissrnd to generate a poisson distribution with the rate that you have in mind, that would specify when you want the run the event and with what properties.
