We're announcing two events for late March 2010 -- "The 2010 NEURON Simulator Meeting" and "Course on Parallelizing Network Models with NEURON". These will be held at the University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ, during the week of March 22, 2010. Registration is limited (30 for the Meeting, 10 for the Course), and the registration deadline for both events is Friday, Feb. 26, 2010.

The new standard distribution of NEURON is version 7.1, which is available from the download page http://www.neuron.yale.edu/neuron/download. A few new features have been added, such as
The algorithms used in the IntFire4 artificial spiking neuron have been revised to be more biologically plausible, in light of findings described in a paper by Ronald van Elburg and Arjen van Ooyen which appeared in a recent issue of Neural Computation (see REFERENCE below). We would like to take this occasion to describe their results and thank them for making this valued contribution to the community of NEURON users.
IntFire4 is a "current-based" integrate and fire mechanism which has an "excitatory current" that decays with time constant taue, and a biphasic "inhibitory
NEURON's web site has a new look and feel! We're switching from static HTML to a dynamic site that enables active participation of the NEURON user community in the creation and revision of documentation. We hope you share our enthusiasm, and invite you to join us in maximizing the usefulness of NEURON and this web site! Read more about the purpose of this web site.
