I would like to place a dot on a shape plot to denote the location of a synapse. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks in advance!!

And thanks to you for continuing to use NEURON!

The Shape class has a method called point_mark that will do what you want. Actually, the Shape class has a lot of interesting features--see ... shape.html
