To obtain the NeuronC simulation language

NeuronC is used for simulating neural circuits, especially in the visual system. It is a C-like interpreter with additional statements to allow constructing a biophysically-based neural circuit (1 neuron up to 10,000 neurons) and running a physiology experiment on it.

NeuronC includes a 2D stimulator with spot, bar and grating stimuli, optical blur and voltage and current clamps. It can simulate any neural geometry including resistive loops (required for arrays of neurons connected by gap junctions).

The gcc-compatible source is available from:

NeuronC runs under virtually any Unix system, and is currently developed under Linux. There is a DOS version available. We recommend Slackware 7.0 or RedHat 7.1. Linux.
