The latest standard distribution of NEURON is version 7.3, which is now (April 2013) availiable from, allows reaction-diffusion in one dimension to be specified using Python classes and methods described in the new Programmer's Reference under Programmatic Model Specification / Basic Reaction-Diffusion. Also, a tutorial on how to use this new feature has been added to

This is a very active area in NEURON development, and we are working to extend it to two- and three-dimensional reaction-diffusion. Previously it was necessary to use NMODL for reaction-diffusion. We expect that interpreter-based specification of reaction-diffusion will eventually replace this application of NMODL.
