Import the morphology into the CellBuilder, then use the CellBuilder to specify biophysical properties and spatial discretization (use the d_lambda strategy). Then use the CellBuilder to create a template 1. Management page / Cell Type button 2. Use the Classname button to assign a name to the cell ...

can't reconstitute an Impedance Path tool from a ses file

I was examining the electrotonic properties of a model cell with the Impedance Path tool. My custom GUI consisted of a CellBuilder, a RunControl panel, and the Impedance Path tool. I saved this to a ses file using File / save session, then exited NEURON. Later I restarted NEURON and tried to recover...
