A general-purpose neural simulator focusing on topographic maps.
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.
Topographica is already packaged for a number of platforms, including Linux, Mac, and Windows. Please see http://topographica.org/Downloads for links to packages. Below is a brief summary for installation into an existing Python environment.
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 and PIL 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.
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
