NEURON can be used to implement distributed models of networks that will run in a parallel computation environment (multiprocessor PCs, workstation clusters, or parallel supercomputer architectures). Speedup is proportional to the number of processors until each processor is handling only about 100 equations. Properly written code will run without change on single processor, standalone PCs.
