Why: If you have, or plan to start, a research project that
involves computationally intensive modeling or data analysis,
you should know about NSG. NSG is being developed with support
from NSF to make it easy for neuroscientists to use high
performance computing (HPC) resources in their research.

Some of NSG's advantages:
* Quick and easy account application and approval.
* Free computing time. No cost to your account budget!
* Simple user interface for uploading data,
running simulations or data analysis tasks,
and downloading results
* Installed software includes MOOSE, GENESIS 3, NEST,
NEURON, PyNN, the Freesurfer Software Suite,
and the Virtual Brain Empirical Data Pipeline
