The authoritative reference on NEURON, a software program used by neuroscientists to create computer models used to study the function of biological neurons and neural networks. Written by the creator of the NEURON program, its main purpose is to teach readers how to use NEURON. Without assuming any previous computer-programming knowledge, it provides practical advice and full working examples to help users get the most out of NEURON. It will be an essential handbook for anyone working with NEURON in computational neuroscience, theoretical neuroscience, neurophysiology, and neuroscience.
