NEURON + Python SfN Tutorial Links

Post by mctavish » Wed Dec 01, 2010 2:34 pm

Below is a summary from the NEURON + Python tutorial at SfN. Unfortunately, attachments are not part of the bulletin board, so email me if you are interested in any of the slides.

The seminar had two parts: low-level python code delivered by Tom McTavish and higher-level presentations by the other speakers.

The low-level python code can be found on our NEURON-equipped Sage server at: https://nn.med.yale.edu:8000. To exercise the code, you must log in with a user id and password. Once on, click on the "published" link and then with each of the following worksheets, click "Edit a copy." The order of the worksheets was:
  • Python Basics
    NEURON + Python Basics
    Ball-and-stick: 1 - 5
Tom Morse gave a presentation of ModelDB http://senselab.med.yale.edu/modeldb/.
Ted Carnevale talked about mixing hoc and python code.
Andrew Davison gave a nice talk on various Python tools. Much of the information he presented is available at http://www.davison.webfactional.com/ and http://neuralensemble.org/.
Tom Foutz gave an impressive presentation on 3D rendering in Mayavi2 with NEURON running simultaneously. His slides and code are available at https://github.com/tfoutz99/Neuron3D, http://tfoutz99.github.com/Neuron3D/ and https://github.com/tfoutz99/Neuron3D/ra ... 0_Talk.pdf.
