NEURON-related research at the SFN 2010 meeting

We've been trying to build a list of presentations at this year's SFN meeting that report work done with NEURON, and so far we have found 42 talks and poster sessions--see http://www.neuron.yale.edu/ftp/ted/neuron/neuron_at_sfn2010.html. The titles, abstracts, concepts, and keywords show that NEURON is being used to address a wide range of interesting problems.

But as impressive as this list is, it probably only represents a small fraction of the actual number of presentations that report work done with NEURON. The Itinerary Planner isn't much use for identifying such papers; we have had to rely on tips and confirmations from NEURON users. So if you know of anything that we should add, please comment on this blog or send an email to ted dot carnevale at yale dot edu, and we'll take care of it.

"Final" count 63, but almost certainly an underestimate

As of 11/17/2010, the tally of NEURON-related presentations at SFN 2010 was 63 (see http://www.neuron.yale.edu/ftp/ted/neuron/neuron_at_sfn2010.html). Although this is 50% more than we first thought, it is almost certainly an underestimate of the true number. Tips from NEURON users accounted for about half of the 21 "extra" presentations; I discovered the others during the poster sessions. There is a good chance that yet other poster presentations were missed, and there is no way to know how many "slide presentations" reported research that involved NEURON.

But the most important point is this: computational modeling in general, and modeling with NEURON in particular, continue to be adopted by increasing numbers of neuroscientists who are using it to address an ever-widening range of research questions. Keep up the great work, people!
