Seats are still available for the NEURON course at this year's
meeting of the Society for Neuroscience.  The registration
deadline is Friday, September 29--just two weeks from tomorrow!
Based on past experience, there will be a last minute rush of
applicants, so you should act quickly if you are interested.

This year's course will include presentations on topics that include:
<> how to use the Import3D tool to convert detailed morphometric
    data (Neurolucida, swc, and Eutectic) into models
<> how to use the new CellBuilder to set up spatially nonuniform
    biophysical properties
<> how to use the ModelView tool to quickly discover what's really
    in a model (very helpful for deciphering your own old models,
    not to mention those you get from ModelDB and other sources)
<> how to use the ChannelBuilder to create new voltage- and ligand-
    gated channels--including stochastic ion channels--without
    having to write any program code
<> how to speed up network models by distributing them over multiple

Also, two copies of The NEURON Book will be on display.  There will
be a drawing to determine which two registrants get to take these
books at the end of the course.
