NeuroML-capable neuronal network simulator (Lua package)

CNrun is a neuronal network simulator, with these features:

  • a conductance- and rate-based Hodgkin-Huxley neurons, a Rall and Alpha-Beta synapses;
  • a 6-5 Runge-Kutta integration method: slow but precise, adjustable;
  • Poisson, Van der Pol, Colpitts oscillators and interface for external stimulation sources;
  • NeuroML network topology import/export;
  • logging state variables, spikes;
  • implemented as a Lua module, for scripting model behaviour (e.g., to enable plastic processes regulated by model state);
  • interaction (topology push/pull, async connections) with other cnrun models running elsewhere on a network, with interactions (planned).

Note that there is no `cnrun’ executable, which existed in cnrun-1.*. Instead, you write a script for your simulation in Lua, and execute it as detailed in /usr/share/lua-cnrun/examples/example1.lua.
