Brian 1.0: a pure Python neural simulator
The 1.0 release of Brian is finally out!
Brian is a new simulator for spiking neural networks available on almost
all platforms. The motivation for this project is that a simulator
should not only save the time of processors, but also the time of
scientists. Brian is easy to learn and use, highly flexible and easily
extensible. The Brian package itself and simulations using it are all
written in the Python programming language, which is an easy, concise
and highly developed language with many advanced features and
development tools, excellent documentation and a large community of
users providing support and extension packages. This makes Brian an
excellent choice for teaching.
Brian is being developed by Romain Brette (brette at di.ens.fr) and Dan
Goodman (goodman at di.ens.fr).
The web site (http://brian.di.ens.fr/) contains a few examples (click on
Demo), installation instructions and the documentation. There is also a
public forum where you can ask any questions:
