### topological loops

Hello, I was wondering if it is possible to make complete loops in dendritic morphology, e.g.: ___________ | | | | | | | | |__________| ok, that doesnt work well, but it's just a square, such that dendrite A connects to B which connects to C which connects to D which connects to A. i know this seems...

### Re: Shape shape plot in hoc

just found this answer from ted from another post that solves the issue: Every graph class has a method called exec_menu. Read about it here http://www.neuron.yale.edu/neuron/static/docs/help/neuron/general/classes/graph.html#exec_menu The key is to know the name of the graph, or of the objref that ...

### Re: Shape shape plot in hoc

I've noticed that if I manually go to the figure and select Variable Scale > Shape, I then get what I want. I am essentially asking for the hoc code that does this.

Cheers,

### Shape shape plot in hoc

Hi all, I'm trying to do something in hoc that is quite simple to do with the GUI (I'm sure it's also simple in hoc, I'm just at a loss for trying to figure out how to do it). I just want to open a simple shape plot that is color coded by a variable (e.g. the voltage "v"). I've looked through the Pl...

### Differences in simulation results

Hi everyone, I have a very general question which has been in my mind lately (brought about by a very specific issue). I have a multicompartmental model, and I noticed that when I run the exact same simulation (no pseudorandom variables) it on my Mac OS X machine I get different results than if I ru...

### convert geometry files

Hi,

Our lab just got a 3d printer (fun!) and I was wondering if anyone knew how to convert an asc file to a 3ds, obj, or stl file, or any normal CAD file. I have tried using the TREES toolbox but I can't seem to get their outputted 3ds files to work.

Thanks,

### boolean function for mechanism?

Hi! I was looking through the documentation trying to find a function which tests if a given mechanism is inserted within a section. What I'm trying to do is make a sectionlist of all sections with a given mechanism (actually what I'd really like to do is color a shapeplot according to that info, bu...

### Strings and objects in Neuron

I would like to create a File object (by the i mean obFile = new File("file_name.txt") ) where file_name.txt is actually a string which is the name of some other object (let's say I have a List object that I have named synList). What I would like to do is have some function where synList is an input...

### Re: Bus Errors with NetCon/VecStim

OK. What seemed to be the problem was that I was assigning the play vector for the vecStim objects within an objectfunction and passing a list of those vecStim objects back to my main code. For some reason (maybe Ted will know the answer), this did not work. When instead, I called vecStim.play(some_...

I got it working. :)

I'll post up what the problem was and how to fix it within the next day for posterity.

### Re: Bus Errors with NetCon/VecStim

Ok, I am trying to play with the code a bit to see where the problem lies. Is there a way to print the vector which the vecstim object plays from (to make sure that the times are correct?) I believe that something is going wrong with assigning the vector to play from, when I modified my code to forc...

### Re: Bus Errors with NetCon/VecStim

maybe putting some more code is appropriate at this point: this is the function that defines the list of vecStims objref stimList obfunc defStim() { local nSyns, nCycs, OFFSET, f localobj tobj, tvec, sTimes nSyns = \$o1.count() // THE NUMBER OF SYNAPSES nCycs = \$o2.size()/nSyns // THE NUMBER OF CYCLE...

### Re: Bus Errors with NetCon/VecStim

Not enough information in your post. Maybe not enough in your code either, or at least "not expressed clearly enough to succeed when fed to a (stupid) computer." Which suggests maybe not enough for a human to guess what you're thinking, either. Can you state, in plain language, what you're trying t...

### Bus Errors with NetCon/VecStim

I am trying to run code that has N number of Exp2Syn synapses across a dendritic tree. The Exp2Syns are in a list object, and there are corresponding lists of both netcons and vecstim objects. The vecstims have a vector with length >1 that they play from. When I try to run this setup I get the follo...
