cirsiumNeuron is a neuronal circuit simulator that can directly and
efficiently compute characterizations of stochastic behavior, i.e.,
noise, for multi-neuron circuits. It is still in its early stages of
development, so beware of bugs!
cirsiumNeuron requires the SUNDIALS suite and the MATLAB interface of
SUNDIALS called sundialsTB. In order to install SUNDIALS and sundialsTB,
please download SUNDIALS (version 2.6.0), which is available
at http://computation.llnl.gov/casc/sundials/main.html, and follow
the installation instructions given at the above link.
In order to install sundialsTB, within MATLAB, navigate to the sundialsTB
subdirectory and run the script called "install_STB.m".
You will need a C compiler that is recognized by MATLAB in order to
generate .mex files. The installed sundialsTB and the source code
for cirsiumNeuron should be added to the MATLAB path before attempting
to use cirsiumNeuron.
Please type "help circuit" in MATLAB for a brief tutorial on how to
construct a simple circuit with cirsiumNeuron.
Please see the papers below for the details of the formulations and
techniques implemented in cirsiumNeuron:
