When Python is the interpreter, what is a good
design for the interface to the basic NEURON
When using the Neuron library is there a recommended way of specifying the physical dimensions of a section in 3D? Ideally I'm looking for something along the lines of:
Code: Select all
>>>from neuron import h
Where the direction property would specify the direction of the section relative to some cardinals.

Specification of geometry is documented in the Programmer's Reference under Geometry

You'll want to know about the difference between stylized and 3d specification. The various hoc parameters, functions, and procedures for specification of geometry are, of course, callable from Python as discussed in the Programmer's Reference under Python_accessing_Hoc

I'll post back once I've had some experience with this.
