For general information about mod files go to the FAQ list

  • Where can I find examples of mod files?
    How do I compile mod files?
mod files contain code in NMODL (NEURON Model Description
Language), which is used to add new biophysical mechanisms
to NEURON. The best place to learn about NMODL is
http://www.neuron.yale.edu/ftp/ted/book ... xedref.pdf

If you're using MSWin, you'll find some old documentation
about NMODL in c:\nrn57\html\refman\nocmodl.html. This
was written before NEURON was ported to the Mac and PCs,
so it doesn't say anything about mknrndll.

five (5) Cerebellar purkinje cell models in ModelDB

Post by tom_morse »

I wanted to explain how to use ModelDB to find Cerebellar purkinje cell's. Start from the ModelDB home page and then click on 'Find models of a particular Neuron type'. Then click on Cerebellar purkinje cell. You will be lead to the below link which has links to (currently 5) Cerebellar purkinje cell model's:
