Models of cochlear nucleus neurons

Project description

A Python package implementing computational models of the globular bushy cells (GBCs) in the mammalian ventral cochlear nucleus. Phenomenological models of endbulbs of Held with with short term synaptic depressions are also included.

Usage

Look for examples in the examples directory (e.g. nrn_gbc_demo.py and nrn_gbc_demo_with_default_weights.py). Note that some examples require cochlea to be installed.

Installation

Install the dependencies:

Clone the git repo with:

git clone https://github.com/mrkrd/cochlear_nucleus.git
cd cochlear_nucleus

Compile NEURON’s models:

make

or manually:

cd cochlear_nucleus/nrn && nrnivmodl
cd -

Install the package itself:

python setup.py develop --user
