This site contains articles, movies and demos of computational models
developed during the last few years, successively at the University of
Brussels (Belgium), the Salk Institute (USA), Laval University (Canada) and at
CNRS (France). The topics range from biophysical models of synaptic
transmission at the main receptor types (AMPA, NMDA, GABAA, GABAB and
neuromodulators), single-cell models of the electrophysiological properties of
central neurons (thalamus and neocortex), as well as network models (thalamic
and cortical networks).
The last updated version of this web site can be found at: http://cns.iaf.cnrs-gif.fr.
Downloadable information about published work or papers in press. Both
abstracts and complete copies of the articles can be accessed.
Computer-generated animations of some of the models developed. The original
papers are also available. These animations are a good complement to the
articles, and in many cases, they illustrate the dynamics of the system much
better than any of the published figures...
Source code of the programs that generated some of the figures of the
published articles. These demos are running on publically-available NEURON simulator. They can be used as
tutorials to learn how to use NEURON, or for teaching or didactic purposes.
Cellular morphologies of thalamic and cortical neurons, to be used with the NEURON simulator. The original papers
in which these cells were used are also included.
I hope you will enjoy it and if you have problems, contact me.
