If you have published a computational neuroscience model that is not
already in ModelDB, we invite you to enter it.  ModelDB's streamlined,
web-based form makes this very simple, but if you have any hesitation
we encourage you to read the newly revised "help" page
http://senselab.med.yale.edu/modeldb/guide2.html
and to view the "Model entry tutorial" screencast
http://senselab.med.yale.edu/modeldb/how_to_submit_a_model/how_to_submit_a_model.htm
Or you can just contact Tom Morse
tom dot morse at yale dot edu

We would also like to hear if you have published any articles that
used information obtained from ModelDB, or mentioned ModelDB in
another context.

We are very interested to hear your comments or suggestions for
improving ModelDB.

==========
Background
==========

ModelDB http://senselab.med.yale.edu/modeldb/ is a searchable on-line
database that supports the field of computational neuroscience (CNS)
through convenient sharing of published models.  It catalyzes advances
in CNS by enabling verification of published models--which is essential
for scientific reproducibility--and fostering attributed re-use and
extension of models.

As of February 24, 2009, ModelDB contains 444 models, implemented with
more than 40 different programming languages or simulation environments.
Model entries include downloadable source code, plus citations and links
to the published articles.
