A general-purpose neural simulator focusing on topographic maps.

Project description

`Topographica`_ is a software package for computational modeling of
neural maps. The goal is to help researchers understand brain function
at the level of the topographic maps that make up sensory and motor
systems.

Please see http://topographica.org/ for more information.

Installation
============

Please see http://topographica.org/Downloads for more complete
instructions; a brief summary for installation into an existing
Python environment is given here.

If you have `pip`_, you can use one of
those to install Topographica and its dependencies automatically
(e.g. ``pip install topographica``).

Alternatively, you can download and unpack the archive below, and then
install Topographica with a command like ``python setup.py install``
(e.g. ``sudo python setup.py install`` for a site-wide installation,
or ``python setup.py install --user`` to install into
``~/.local``). You will need to install at least `NumPy`_, `Pillow`_ (or `PIL`_),
`Param`_, `ParamTk`_, and `ImaGen`_, before running Topographica. We
also recommend that you install `MatPlotLib`_ so you can access all
Topographica's plots, as well as `GmPy`_ and Weave (available as part
of `SciPy`_) for optimum performance.
