NEURON Programming Tutorials

NEURON Programming Tutorials


The following set of tutorials is designed to introduce you to creating neuronal models with the NEURON simulator. They are modified and extended versions of the tutorials by Kevin Martin, provided with NEURON. They have been updated for NEURON 4.3.


Tutorial #1: introduces running the simulator and some basic HOC commands in the course of building a single compartment soma containing Hodgkin-Huxley sodium and potassium channels.

Tutorial #2: examines some of the functions available with NEURON that allow building a graphical user interface.

Tutorial #3: adds dendrites and an axon to the soma to create a multicompartmental model.

Tutorial #4: creates four copies of the multicompartmental cell and joins them together to create a small network.
