Past courses

Using NEURON to Model Cells and Networks, a Satellite Symposium presented at the Society for Neuroscience meetings since 1997.
Examine an introductory lecture from the 1997 SFN course. This tutorial should help you get started creating your own models and using NEURON's graphical interface.
Check the Documentation page for a link to the CellBuilder tutorial, which is based on a lesson presented at the 1999 SFN course.
Learn how to use the Network Builder to create network models that contain artificial neural elements and biophysically-based neural models. These tutorials are based on a presentation from the 2000 SFN course.
The NEURON Simulation Environment, an intensive multi-day hands-on course presented since 1998 at the University of California, San Diego, with NSF and NIH support, and occasionally at other locations including the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST, Daejeon, South Korea, 2010) and the Inistitute of Science and Technology (IST, Klosterneuburg, Austria, 2012).
NEURON Workshops, presented at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis in the summers of 2000 - 2003.
The content of this hands-on course was similar to what we have offered in San Diego, but structured so that registrants could select a 3-day basic curriculum or stay for a full 5 days to learn about advanced topics.
Here's an on-line version of the exercises from the 2008 summer course.
