NEURON 5.9.39

Post by ted » Wed May 24, 2006 3:08 pm

As of May 24, 2006, the latest standard distribution of NEURON is 5.9.39 -- see
http://www.neuron.yale.edu/neuron/install/install.html
In addition to the usual bug fixes, this new version sports numerous enhancements,
most of which are internal. The more noteworthy ones that may be visible at the user level include:
  • NMODL now has a FOR_NETCONS keyword that can be used to implement stream-specific spike-timing-dependent synaptic plasticity.
    The ParallelContext and ParallelNetworkManager classes have been revised to provide greater efficiency and control of distributed network models implemented in a parallel computing environment.
    The Network Buider and Channel Builder GUI tools now allow activation of "aliases" that provide direct access from hoc to internal variables such as rate constants.
For an example of how to activate and access a Channel Builder's aliases, see
https://www.neuron.yale.edu/phpBB2/view ... er+aliases
For a Network Builder's aliases, start by clicking on Net Variables, then select Provide NetGUI[0].aliases.
From this point, usage is similar to that described for the Channel Builder.
