This is the readme for the model for the paper: Lytton WW; Neymotin SA; Hines ML. The virtual slice setup. J. Neurosci Methods. 171:309-15. PMID: 18452996, 2008. This model will only run under unix/linux. How to run: nrnivmodl nrngui mosinit.hoc leads user through a demo of major features turn off demo by setting 'showdemo=0' at top of mosinit.hoc note 'Help' button at bottom of major menu 'Slice' generated windows are not arranged since I found that my default placements ended up off the screen for some users while the slice runs the modeler can control the simulation interactively through control panels and graphs of activity are displayed: Changelog --------- 2022-05: Updated MOD files to contain valid C++ and be compatible with the upcoming versions 8.2 and 9.0 of NEURON. 2023-04: Updated MOD files to be compatible with the new data structures in the upcoming 9.0 version of NEURON.
