Hello developers I have the following novice problem. I want to call a given cell template from a hoc script and then access the exact same instantiation of that cell from a different python script. I fall upon a couple of syntax errors as I try to do that and was hoping for some guidance. my hoc ce...

Hello Developers I am having some difficulty finding an answer to the following question in the NEURON-Python documentation so far and was hoping for some guidance or pointing to the right direction. My question is: How can I load (and thus execute) a hoc file from a python script that is accompanie...

error in saving a voltage trace into a figure

Hello developers I am trying to do the simple task, save a figure using one of the python templates found on the NEURON Documentation: initonerun.py. The script plots the Graph just fine using one of my own cell templates (example.hoc), but it doesn't save it correctly. The problem is in the last si...

Re: TypeError: sec is not a Section"

thanks a lot, this worked.

Code: Select all

from neuron import h

h.load_file('example.hoc')
cell=h.example() #create an instance of this class
soma_py=cell.soma[0]
print(soma_py)
stim = h.IClamp(0.5, sec=soma_py)

TypeError: sec is not a Section"

Hello developers In the example below I want to stimulate and record from the soma of the cell template example.hoc using the try.py python script. If I run try.py I get the error: "stim = h.IClamp(0.5, sec=soma_py) TypeError: sec is not a Section" It doesn't seem that my script is accessing the som...

Re: 'hoc.HocObject' object has no attribute 'instantiate'

Thank you Ted I have done some further digging into the problem and I realize the the issue is with the instantiation of my cell model in python. I changed the title to reflect the issue more accurately. So I want to instantiate my cell model whose morphology is given in a cell template. I get the e...

'hoc.HocObject' object has no attribute 'instantiate'

Hello

What is the general meaning behind the error: "a template cannot be redefined"?
In my case I am trying to stimulate a neuron written in a hoc template using a python script.
Is it because stimulating my cell modifies the template and modifying a template is not allowed?

thank you,
Alexandra

Re: How can python read from a hoc file templates and procs?

Thank you Ted. I now understand that "newpyr = h.Pyr()" creates a new instance of "Pyr" and this explains the zero values I was getting in the first example I posted. However if we go back to my first example listed again below, how can I have python print h.NumApical? "print h.axoaxoniccell_temp.Nu...

Re: How can python read from a hoc file templates and procs?

Thank you Ted. As a matter of fact, the code I posted is a toy code I use to experiment/understand how Python reads variables, parameters and their values from NEURON. From your response I realize that the idea is that Python reads the type of variables and parameters defined in hoc but expects that...

Hello

Is it true that fscan is confused with comment lines and is there a way to add comments in a text file that needs to be read by fscan?
