Using NEURON to model cells and networks

WHEN

2 November 2018

WHERE

San Diego, CA location TBA

WHAT

This course emphasizes practical issues that are key to the most productive use of NEURON, an advanced simulation environment for realistic modeling of biological neurons and neural circuits. Through lectures and live computer demonstrations, we will address topics that include the following:

2018 NEURON Summer Course

WHEN

6 August 2018 to 11 August 2018

WHERE

Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia

WHAT

This intensive multi-day course is suitable for users at all levels of expertise. It is designed for those who are planning to use NEURON in neuroscience research or teaching, or already have active modeling projects that involve NEURON. It presents what you need to know to build and work with models of individual neurons and networks of neurons, and includes an introduction to simulation on parallel hardware.

Using the Neuroscience Gateway Portal for parallel simulations

WHEN

11 November 2017

WHERE

Downtown Washington DC

WHAT

This workshop is intended for neuroscientists who need to use high performance computing (HPC) resources computationally intensive tasks such as large modeling projects or analysis of neuroimaging data.

Using NEURON to model cells and circuits

WHEN

10 November 2017

WHERE

Downtown Washington DC site TBA

WHAT

This course will be held from 9 AM to 5 PM on Friday, Nov. 10, 2017, as a satellite to the SFN 2017 meeting. It emphasizes practical issues that are key to the most productive use of NEURON, an advanced simulation environment for realistic modeling of biological neurons and neural circuits. Through lectures and live computer demonstrations, we will address topics that include the following:

Reaction-diffusion modeling for neurobiology

WHEN

20 July 2017

WHERE

This is part of the CNS 2017 conference in Antwerp, Belgium.

WHAT

This workshop will be held from 9 AM to 6 PM on Thursday, July 20, 2017. NEURON's own RxD module will be one of the topics of discussion.

2017 NEURON Summer Course

WHEN

5 June 2017 to 10 June 2017

WHERE

Wright State University, Fairborn, Ohio.

WHAT

A six day hands-on course on computational modeling with NEURON. This course will present what you need to know to use NEURON to model individual neurons and networks of neurons. The curriculum is based on our previous 5 day courses, but includes more coverage of parallel simulation and extra time for active learning exercises.

NEURON at CNS 2014 meeting

WHEN

26 July 2016

WHERE

Quebec City Convention Center, room 2103

WHAT

A half-day tutorial on new developments in NEURON, highlighting Python, reaction-diffusion, NEURON-interfacing, ModelDB, and more.

NEURON Workshops

WHEN

1 June 2000 to 1 June 2003

WHERE

University of Minnesota in Minneapolis

WHAT

The content of this hands-on course was similar to our other multi-day courses, but structured so that registrants could select a 3-day basic curriculum or stay for a full 5 days to learn about advanced topics.
