The Brain Networks Group and Neurophysics Department of the Max-Planck
Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences Leipzig released an
open-source Python software for neural network and dynamical systems
modeling:

PyRates (https://github.com/pyrates-neuroscience/PyRates,
https://www.cbs.mpg.de/departments/neurophysics/software/pyrates)

Main features of PyRates are:

- Intuitive and re-usable model definitions via YAML files or purely in
Python
- networkx representations of each model allows to compute graph theoretic
measurements on the fly (https://networkx.github.io/)
-  Efficient numerical simulations via scipy, numpy and tensorflow
- evolutionary model parameter optimization
- large-scale parameter sweeps on single machines and compute clusters
- parameter continuation and bifurcation analysis via auto-07p

For a full list of features and their documentation, check out the PyRates
documentation at https://pyrates.readthedocs.io/en/latest/.

For feedback and contributions, contact us via our GitHub repository:
https://github.com/pyrates-neuroscience/PyRates.
Install instructions can be found there as well!
