The official release of version 7.3 of NEURON brings many improvements and enhancements. The most salient of these are listed at http://www.neuron.yale.edu/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=2793. Of particular interest to many will be NEURON's new ability to deal with reactive diffusion. A tutorial about how to use this new feature has been added to the Documentation page of this site.
In response to the "sequester," we are offering a $150 early registration discount on a limited number of seats in the NEURON Summer Course and the Parallelizing NEURON Models course. The discount will apply to registrants who sign up and pay by 5 PM EDT (New York time), Friday, April 12, 2013.
2013 promises to be another exciting year as we introduce a new item to the curriculum in response to the evolving needs of the community of NEURON users.
The first hands-on course this year will be an updated version of "The NEURON Simulation Environment" (the "Summer Course"). As always, this course provides a comprehensive introduction to the use of NEURON for modeling cells and networks.
As ted mentioned in his blog a couple of days ago, we're trying to discover all of the presentations at this year's SFN meeting--well, as many as possible--and listing them at http://www.neuron.yale.edu/neuron/static/sfn2012/ni.html Today the count has gone up to 35. Check it out, and if we missed your talk or poster, tell us and we'll add it to the list!
As of January 29, 2012, we know of 1176 publications that report work that used NEURON--see http://www.neuron.yale.edu/neuron/static/bib/usednrn.html . This is an increase of 169 from the total of 1007 on September 3, 2010, the last time we updated this page.
It may seem a surprise that many of these newly discovered papers were actually published several years ago: 4 in 2007, 7 in 2008, 10 in 2009, and 46 in 2010. We have noted this "delayed discovery" phenomenon every year since we started keeping track of NEURON publications.
This is a year for milestones. For the first time ever, there will be a NEURON Summer Course on two continents: one at University of California, San Diego, from June 23-27 (see http://www.neuron.yale.edu/neuron/static/courses/nscsd2012/nscsd2012.html), and another at Institute of Science and Technology in Klosterneuburg, Austria, from August 20-24 (see http://www.ist.ac.at/NeuronCourse2012/).
This is also the first NEURON course in Europe. Many thanks to Peter Jonas, Jose Guzman, and our other colleagues at IST Austria for inviting us and organizing this event!
On November 11, 2011, we will hold a one-day course on NEURON as a satellite session of the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in Washington, DC. In this course we will present practical tips to help beginners get started, an executive-level summary to help PIs understand how NEURON might be helpful in their research, and review some of the latest advances to help bring established NEURON users up to date. For more information and an on-line registration form, click on "Courses" in the menu at the top of this page.
At long last the NEURON 2011 Summer Course is open for registration. This 5-day intensive hands on course covers a wide range of topics and saves users many weeks, if not months, of time with their projects. For a link to detailed information about this course and an on-line registration form, click on "Courses" in the menu at the top of this page.
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.
On Saturday morning, Nov. 13, 2010--just before the Society for Neuroscience meeting--there will be a four hour course on NEURON + Python. Continental breakfast will be provided. Registration is free, but space is limited, so if you are interested you should sign up quickly. For further information see the full announcement on The NEURON Forum
