MEArec: Fast and customizable simulation of extracellular recordings on Multi-Electrode-Arrays

MEArec is a package for generating biophysical extracellular neural recording on Multi-Electrode Arrays (MEA). The recording generations combines a Extracellular Action Potentials (EAP) templates generation and spike trains generation. The recordings are built by convoluting and modulating EAP templates with spike trains and adding noise.

To clone this repo open your terminal and run:

git clone


The MEArec package can be installed with:

pip install MEArec

or, from the cloned folder:

python develop


The MEArec detailed documentation is here:
