MyFirstNEURON

MyFirstNEURON is a NEURON demo written by Arthur Houweling after the book Electrophysiology of the Neuron by John Huguenard and David McCormick (New York 1994, Oxford University Press). MyFirstNEURON allows you to simulate experiments described in the book. The demo is appreciated best by following the suggestions of the book.

In addition, you can design a two neuron network without prior knowledge of the NEURON simulation package. Ionic currents that can be experimented with include:

Other features include current clamp, voltage clamp, synaptic stimulation, calcium diffusion and plots of the voltage-dependent time contants and steady-state activation and inactivation curves. MyFirstNEURON was written in the Computational Neurobiology Lab of Terry Sejnowski.
