Presentation Summary

Title : NModLib: a database of components for neuroscience models
Authors : Andrew Davison
Year : 2006


NModLib is a database containing NMODL mechanisms, useful hoc functions and templates and other add-on components for the NEURON simulator. It is complementary to the ModelDB database, but where the focus of ModelDB is on complete models, the focus of NModLib is on model components, i.e. a place to find mechanisms for incorporation into your own model and avoid reinventing the wheel. In addition, ModelDB is limited to models that have been described in a peer-reviewed publication. This restriction does not apply to NModLib. Most of the NMODL files in ModelDB are also available in NModLib, with links back to the full models of which they are part.
