This simulation was tested/developed on LINUX systems, but may run on Microsoft Windows or Mac OS.
To run, you will need the NEURON simulator (available at http://www.neuron.yale.edu)
Unzip the contents of the zip file to a new directory.
to compile & run:
nrngui mosinit.hoc -
Simulation will run for 1 s and spike output from excitatory cells of each column will be displayed. The spike
raster is arranged with y-axis as cell identifier and x-axis as time in milliseconds.
The y-axis is further arranged in order of layer/type, where each type is displayed
with a different color (black:layer 2/3, red:layer 4, green:layer 5a, blue:layer 5b).

202205: Updated MOD files to contain valid C++ and be compatible with the upcoming
versions 8.2 and 9.0 of NEURON. Updated to use post ~2011 signature of
mcell_ran4_init functionand fix hashseed2 argument.
202304: Updated MOD files for compatibility with the new data structures in the
upcoming NEURON 9.0.
