The registration deadline for the NEURON course at the
SFN 2018 meeting is Friday, October 12--less than a month
from now.  The online registration form is at


This course is suitable for applicants with a wide range
of interests and expertise, ranging from experimentalists
who have never done any computational modeling, to advanced
modelers who want to know the latest tips for using
NEURON with Python.

Topics that will be covered include:
--using Python and NEURON's graphical tools to build
and work with models of individual cells
--using the Import3d tool to import detailed anatomical
neuronal data from NeuroLucida and SWC files
--using the CellBuilder to specify the biophysical properties
of model cells with detailed anatomical structure
--expanding NEURON's library of ion channels and other
biophysical mechanisms
--analyzing models with the Model View tool
--building network models
--speeding up simulations on parallel hardware
