Satellite Symposium, Society for Neuroscience Meeting

9 AM - 5 PM on Friday, Nov. 11, 2011

Speakers include M.L. Hines, N.T. Carnevale,
T. McTavish, and G.M. Shepherd


The emphasis of this course is on 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 present the principles and techniques that are involved in creating and using models of cells and networks with NEURON. We will also show how to speed up simulations by taking advantage of parallel hardware ranging from multiprocessor personal computers and workstation clusters to massively parallel supercomputers.

Partial list of topics to be covered:

Each registrant will receive a comprehensive set of notes. Coffee breaks and lunch will be provided.

Registration is limited to 30 individuals on a first-come, first-serve basis.
