tyro: unable to use Zhou et al model from modelDB

Post by suresh »

Hello,

When I try to run the .hoc files I downloaded from:

http://senselab.med.yale.edu/modeldb/Sh ... odel=53869

I get two kinds of errors. For two files, I get:

/Applications/NEURON-7.0/nrn/umac/bin/nrniv.app/Contents/MacOS/nrniv: syntax error
in MSO_Zhouetal_2005.hoc near line 56
insert kHT_VCN2003
^
and for the others: I get

/Applications/NEURON-7.0/nrn/umac/bin/nrniv.app/Contents/MacOS/nrniv: GaussStim is not a template
in test_inputs.hoc near line 53
gen0 = new GaussStim(0.5)

I just started using Neuron yesterday, and do not have a copy of the book.

Are these instances of known issues with backward compatibility ? Is there an easy fix ? And in general, is it going to be easier for me to try to update the deposited model (which I assume, worked with some version of Neuron), or is it better to try to implement the model from the published description ?

All help greatly appreciated !!

Thanks much, Suresh

Code: Select all

I get two kinds of errors
Did you compile the mod files that came with the model? See the entry in the FAQ list about compiling mod files (see "Help for the total beginner" in the "Getting started" area of the NEURON Forum).
I just started using Neuron yesterday, and do not have a copy of the book.
Then "Help for the total beginner" is your shortcut to success.
