This outline is based on my first talk at our course "Using the NEURON Simulation Environment" that was presented on Oct. 25, 1997 at the 27th Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in New Orleans, LA. It will help you get started creating models and managing them with the graphical user interface.
This link will get you a pkzipped collection of these html files and images. Unzip this file to create a new directory subtree whose root is a directory called element. The entry to this outline is element/outline.htm

Step 1: Write the hoc source code
Step 2: Execute hoc source code
Step 3: Build user interface
|Our starting point: NEURON Main Panel|
|We need a "Run" button: Bringing up the
|We need to plot results: Bringing up a
|We need a stimulator: Bringing up the
Step 4: Use interface
|Setting stimulus parameters
|Running the simulation
|Changing the model by revising model code
or by using the graphical interface
Step 5: Save/Retrieve interface
|How to save what we built
|Suppose you have exited NEURON and now you want to start over.
How do you get back what you had saved?
