2021 CNS NEURON + NetPyNE tutorial

WHEN

3 July 2021

WHERE

CNS Conference (online)

WHAT

Understanding brain function requires characterizing the interactions occurring across many temporal and spatial scales. Mechanistic multiscale modeling aims to organize and explore these interactions. In this way, multiscale models provide insights into how changes at molecular and cellular levels, caused by development, learning, brain disease, drugs, or other factors, affect the dynamics of local networks and of brain areas. Large neuroscience data-gathering projects throughout the world (e.g.

2021 NEURON Webinar Series

WHEN

3 June 2021 to 3 August 2021

WHERE

Online

WHAT

This course maps the first half of the NEURON Summer Course into a series of interactive online workshops about building and working with models of single neurons. It is designed for those who are planning to use NEURON in neuroscience research or teaching, or already have active projects that involve NEURON, and is suitable for users at all levels of expertise.

  • Beginners with little or no modeling experience will learn the philosophical basis, scientific rationale, and technical aspects of modeling. 

2019 NEURON Summer Course

WHEN

10 June 2019 to 15 June 2019

WHERE

University of Minnesota, Minneapolis

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.
