This is the readme for the model from the paper
Hines, Eichner, and Schuermann (2008)
Neuron splitting in compute-bound parallel network simulations enables
runtime scaling with twice as many processors.
J Comput Neurosci (accepted).
The pardentategyrus and nrntraub folders contain splitcell
parallelized versions of the ModelDB models used in fig 3 of the above
Original serial versions of the models are at
Splitcell modifications to the Santhakumar model began with the
pardentategyrus code at
Note: for autolaunch from ModelDB, after the choice of which of the two
figure 3 models to run, an attempt is made to do the appropriate
nrnivmodl or mknrndll and dynamically load the shared library or dll.
The simulation will stop after setup when launched using the mosinit.hoc
In the pardentgyrus directory, see bg.sh for an example of how
these simulations were run in parallel on the BlueGene.
20140403 splitcell/nrntraub/mod/ri.mod had char* secname(); changed to
const char* secname(); to conform with ansi C compiler in new
20220523 Updated MOD files to contain valid C++ and be compatible with
the upcoming versions 8.2 and 9.0 of NEURON.
20220924 Update MOD files to avoid declaring variables and functions with
the same name. See https://github.com/neuronsimulator/nrn/pull/1992
20230420 Do not assume a full definition of Section is visible, for
compatibility with nrn#2027.
