Dear Colleagues,

We are happy to announce the release of DynaSim, an open-source MATLAB/GNU
Octave toolbox for rapid prototyping of neural models and batch simulation
management. It was designed to speed up and simplify the process of
generating, sharing, and exploring network models of neurons with one or
more compartments; it is the first, comprehensive neural modeling and
simulation platform developed in MATLAB. It provides C compilation,
optimized vector calculations, multi-core processing, and support for
compute clusters to overcome the traditionally slow simulation speeds of
MATLAB. It is also available for high performance computing via the
Neuroscience Gateway web portal.

A paper introducing DynaSim was recently published in Frontiers in

Documentation is available online at http://dynasimtoolbox.org.

We hope this tool reduces barriers for investigating dynamics in neural
models, facilitates collaborative modeling, and complements other tools
being developed in the neuroinformatics community. Most of all, we hope you
find this toolbox useful!

Please direct questions to the lead developer, Jason Sherfey <

Best regards,
