NeuronDB provides a dynamically searchable database of three types of neuronal properties: voltage gated conductances, neurotransmitter receptors, and neurotransmitter substances. It contains tools that provide for integration of these properties in a given type of neuron and compartment, and for comparison of properties across different types of neurons and compartments. Read the tutorial for searching for Neuron Properties in NeuronDB


This resource is intended to:

  • Support the genomics and proteomics of neuron types
  • Support research on neuron properties
  • Facilitate the creation of computational neuronal models
  • Identify receptors across neuron types to aid in drug development
  • Serve as a teaching aid
