Theory, modelling and simulation
NEST-Tutorial: The goal of this Project is to provide a kick-start into neural network simulations using the NEST simulator. Optimized for spiking neural networks the simulator provides a framework for the simulation of large scale networks running on HPC platforms. The NESTML interface allows modelers to implement new neuron models in an easy and mathematically defined language with minimal programming overhead. The NESTML defined models are furthermore independant of the actual programming language implementation.
