Modify model

Post by mingu31 »

Hi,
I am wondering whether I can modify existing models using GUI tools.
- change any parameters
- add new ion channels
- simplify the model i.e. reduce number of compartments
Also is it possible to observe the APs at different spatial points along the cell, e.g. soma, axon, dendrites?

Many thanks!

It depends on many factors. The first is how the original model specification was created. If the model specification was created entirely with the GUI, then you can use the GUI to do anything you like with the model. Model specifications created by user-written code are something else. NEURON's programming languages hoc, python, and NMODL grant a great deal of freedom to a programmer. Properly written code works well with the GUI, but one can also write code that is difficult to use with the GUI.

Yes.
