Database of NEURON, PYTHON and MATLAB codes, demos and tutorials

Schematic diagram of the kinetic schemes used for modeling ion channels and synaptic transmission. Different processes essential for modeling neuronal behavior can be described by similar type of equations. Voltage dependence, transmitter release, binding and gating of receptors, second messenger action, and neuromodulation can be all described by the same kinetic formalism (see Synthesis of models for excitable membranes, synaptic transmission and neuromodulation using a common kinetic formalism, Journal of Computational Neuroscience 1: 195-230, 1994).


NEURON demos

The first part of this database is a series of NEURON demo programs related to various cellular and network models that were developed in the laboratory. Each demo reproduces figures of articles published in the literature, in which the models are described in detail, as well as the biological background. Some of these models also appear in the ModelDB database at Yale University.

Note: the models described below were simulated using the NEURON simulator written by Michael Hines. The simulations will run straightforwardly provided the Interviews version of NEURON is installed properly. NEURON is publically available on internet via (see the NEURON home page). For more informations about how to get NEURON and how to install it, please refer to the NEURON home page, or to Michael Hines directly.

These demos can be used by anyone interested - the only condition we ask is to give appropriate citation to the original paper(s).


PYTHON demos

The second part of this database consists of PYTHON demos of some of the analysis procedures developed in the laboratory. PYTHON is a publically-available package in the standard LINUX distribution and is also available for Windows and Mac.

These demos can be used by anyone interested - the only condition we ask is to give appropriate citation to the original paper(s).


MATLAB demos

The third part of this database consists of MATLAB demos of some of the analysis procedures developed in the laboratory. MATLAB is a commercial software produced by Mathworks and which is available for LINUX, Windows and Mac.

These demos can be used by anyone interested - the only condition we ask is to give appropriate citation to the original paper(s).


Various Utilities

The third part of this database is a series of utilities of general interest, some of which were developed in the laboratory.
