Short Course Announcement
Using NEURON to Model Cells and Networks
Satellite Symposium, Society for Neuroscience Meeting
9 AM - 5 PM on Friday, Nov. 14, 2008
Speakers to include M.L. Hines and N.T. Carnevale
The emphasis of this course is on practical issues that are key to the most productive use of NEURON, an advanced simulation environment for realistic modeling of biological neurons and neural circuits. Through lectures and live computer demonstrations, we will present the principles and procedures that are involved in creating and using models of cells and networks with NEURON. We will also show how to create distributed models that achieve nearly linear speedup with the number of processors by taking advantage of parallel hardware ranging from multiprocessor personal computers and workstation clusters to massively parallel supercomputers.
Each registrant will a comprehensive set of notes.
Registration is limited to 40 individuals on a first-come, first serve basis.
Registration deadline is Friday, October 17, 2008.
No on-site registration will be accepted.
