Resource:neuroConstruct

Name: Resource:neuroConstruct
Description: Software for simulating complex networks of biologically realistic neurons, i.e. models incorporating dendritic morphologies and realistic cell membrane conductance, implemented in Java and generates script files for the NEURON and GENESIS simulators, with support for other simulation platforms (including PSICS and PyNN) in development.

neuroConstruct is being developed in the Silver Lab in the Department of Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology at UCL and uses the latest NeuroML specifications, including MorphML, ChannelML and NetworkML.
Some of the key features of neuroConstruct are: Creation of networks of biologically realistic neurons, positioned in 3D space. Complex connectivity patterns between cell groups can be specified for the networks. Can import morphology files in GENESIS, NEURON, Neurolucida, SWC and MorphML format for inclusion in network models. Simulations can be run on the NEURON or GENESIS platforms. Cellular processes (synapses/channel mechanisms) can be imported from native script files or created in ChannelML. Recording of simulation data generated by the simulation and visualization/analysis of data.

Stored simulation runs can be viewed and managed through the Simulation Browser interface.
