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 for more information.


Please see 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 install (e.g. sudo python install for a site-wide installation, or python install --user to install into ~/.local). You will need to install at least NumPy, 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.
