Satellite Symposium, Society for Neuroscience Meeting

9 AM - 5 PM on Friday, October 18, 2019
Location: Downtown Chicago, site TBA

Speakers to include Ted Carnevale, Robert McDougal


This course is designed for neuroscience experimentalists, theoreticians, and modelers with a wide range of backgrounds. 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:

Each registrant will receive a comprehensive set of notes that include the latest powerful tips for using Python with NEURON, working with legacy hoc code, and including reaction-diffusion in models.

To make the registration fee as low as possible, the course does not provide catered coffee breaks or lunch; however, a coffee shop and cafeteria are nearby.

Registration is limited to 35 individuals on a first-come, first-serve basis.
