Interested in how we use computer modeling in our research? Or just want a guide to start your own detailed modeling project? Here are some resources to help you get started for either endeavor:
- The NEURON book, by Ted Carnevale and Michael Hines (2005)
- Computer Modeling in Epilepsy, edited by Ivan Soltesz and Kevin Staley (2008)
- Fundamentals of Computational Neuroscience, by Thomas Trappenberg (2010)
ArticlesIn addition to our many modeling articles listed under Publications, here are a few of the key articles from other labs:
- M.L. Hines, N.T. Carnevale. Translating network models to parallel hardware in NEURON Journal of Neurosci. Methods, 169:425-455, 2008
- Brette, R., et al. Simulation of networks of spiking neurons: a review of tools and strategies. J. Comput. Neurosci. 23:349-398, 2007.
The Soltesz lab dentate gyrus model
Our 50,000 cell rat dentate gyrus NEURON model is available from ModelDB (accession #124513).
Other Modeling Tools
- NeuroConstruct is a visualization and model development tool, which also enables people to create models intuitively without writing model source code
- ModelDB is a database of freely available models that includes many NEURON models
- SimToolDB is a database of freely available simulation tools useful for a variety of simulators
- NeuroMorpho is a database of cell morphologies in a format that can be imported to NEURON
- NeuroML is a movement to standardize model descriptions using XML, and has a site to validate the NeuroML translation of a model
