Computational Neuroscience Package
written by Colin F. C. Thomson
The Computational Neuroscience Launcher Package contains read-to-run computer models that describe the biophysics of the action potential. Contained within the launcher are nine models in four sections; each of the sections illustrates a different aspect of neural dynamics. Section one has models with variables corresponding to specific biological properties, section two models have analytically-determinable firing rates based on input, section three emphasizes phase-plane analysis, and section four shows the dynamics of neural networks. Each model represents just one approach to the still-developing field of neuroscience.
The Computational Neuroscience Launcher Package was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the jar file will run the program if Java is installed. You can modify the simulations in this package if you have EJS installed by right-clicking within a running stimulation and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item.
Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.6 of Java (JRE).
