Efficient Google searches of ModelDB and NEURON's WWW site

1. You can use Google to search SenseLab or ModelDB.
Just type in the key words you want, plus site:http://senselab.med.yale.edu
to search all of SenseLab, or site:http://senselab.med.yale.edu/modeldb/
to search just in ModelDB. For example: to find all mentions of the phrase "h current"
in ModelDB, use Google to search for
"h current" site:http://senselab.med.yale.edu/modeldb/
Thanks to NEURON Forum User kathryn for suggesting searches with the "site:" tag.

2. The Google search field at the bottom of NEURON's home page
typically brings up way too many hits to be very useful. Search results can be sharpened
by eliminating those that reference the ftp site, trac, phpbb2, and sun. To do this,

Code: Select all

-ftp -trac -phpbb2 -sun
in the search string.
