Purpose of this site
Provide Software This website provides software that facilitates the creation of computer models for Neural MicroCircuits (NMC) of various sizes and levels of detail, fast simulation of these computer models, as well as tools for evaluating the computational power of these models in a Matlab-environment.
Serve as a Platform The software provided here should just serve as a starting point for this website. We would like to encourage everybody to help to develop this site further by making his/her models, simulation tools, data, algorithms and last but not least links to related webpages accessible from www.lsm.tugraz.at. Currently there is no automated way for doing this. But any material which is potentially related/interesting can be sent by e-mail via firstname.lastname@example.org to the maintainers of the website.
Specify Bechmark Tasks The universality of a computational model for neural microcircuits can not be tested by evaluating their performance for a single computational task. Instead, each microcircuit model should be tested on a variety of computational benchmark tasks.
The rationale underlying this website is described in more depth in (Natschläger et al., 2002).
