Complex models of individual neurons implemented with NEURON can be distributed over multiple processors to achieve speedup that is almost linear with the number of processors (practical upper limit is ~16 processors). This strategy can also be used for load balancing of network models in which some cells are so large that their individual computation time is much longer than the average processor computation time, or when there are many more processors than cells.
