Resources

Here are some potentially helpful resources for NEURON users and others who employ computational modeling in neuroscience research and teaching.

SenseLab

A multidisciplinary set of related databases designed to support experimental and theoretical research on neurons and neural systems.

ModelDB

One of the components of SenseLab, ModelDB is a database of published computational neuroscience models.

SimToolDB

SimToolDB is a database of tools that may be useful for computational modeling of neurons and neural systems.

NEURON at Duke

where John Moore distributes NEURON plus a large collection of helpful documents on its use in education and research.

Neurons in Action

written by John Moore and Ann Stuart (Sunderland MA 2007, Sinauer Associates), is a book and CD-ROM that present a set of interactive tutorials for teaching neurophysiology to students at all levels.

Source code for exercises

from Bill Lytton's book "From Computer to Brain" (New York 2002, Springer-Verlag).

MyFirstNEURON

by Arthur Houweling, a GUI-based NEURON tool for performing the computational experiments described in the book "Electrophysiology of the Neuron" by John Huguenard and David McCormick (New York 1994, Oxford University Press). We link to the curated version from ModelDB; an older version is available from http://www.cnl.salk.edu/~arthur/MyFirstNEURON.html but is not guaranteed to work with recent releases of NEURON.
