Suggestions for using Python + NEURON

Post by fltchr » Sat Dec 01, 2007 1:54 pm

I am an undergraduate with some experience with NEURON. One of my academic requirements is a month long personal project in January. I am thinking about learning Python by way of NEURON. What I am asking here is for suggestions about a good use of Python + NEURON.

My initial idea is to create a GUI that allows for the manipulation of variables in our models without having to go back to the hoc code. For example, it would be useful to have buttons that turned on/off the connections between particular sets of neurons.

I would greatly appreciate any feedback about this idea or suggestions for other uses of Python + NEURON. Other suggestions are also welcome, such as a better place on this forum to post this request or resources on the internet that could help.

I recommend this book to start out with Python and GUI Programming. An Introduction to Python itseld is included, and with Qt you can run your program closs-platform:

Prentice Hall - Rapid Gui Programming With Python And Qt

Greetz!
