A 3-d reconstructed neuron model can be simulated in parallel on a dozen or so processors and experience almost linear speedup. Network models can be simulated when there are more processors than cells.

This contains the administrative files needed to simulate any
single neuron model in ModelDB.

mkdir modeldb

"sh modelfix.sh" downloads the three single neuron models used in
the paper, extracts them into subdirectories of modeldb and
trivially modifies some files so the models can be launched without
automatically running a simulation.

"sh perfrun.sh" generates the data for figure 5.

eavBinDown in modelfix.sh.
