A consumer guide to neuronal modeling software.

E. De Schutter

Trends in Neuroscience 15:462-464 (1992)

Abstract - This review compares seven packages for simulating single neuron models, and discusses which software features should be considered when selecting a program. Anyone who started modeling neurons in the early eighties faced a lack of modeling software. So several groups started writing programs, sometimes just for a specific model, but often `general purpose neural simulators. The result is that prospective modelers can now choose among about 10 different packages, all with their own peculiarities!
