SpineCreator: a Graphical User Interface for the Creation of Layered Neural Models

PMCID: 5306153
PMID: 27628934
DOI: 10.1007/s12021-016-9311-z

[…] used to construct RCN models. Aside from SpineCreator, there is no equivalent of NeuroConstruct for SNN and RCN creation.SpikeNET (Delorme et al. ; Delorme and Thorpe ), XNBC (Vibert et al. , ), and SNNAP (Ziv et al. ) are software packages that consist of an integrated creation tool and simulator. These tools focus on providing a set of standard neuron models, such as the LIF and Izhikevich mode […]


SpikingLab: modelling agents controlled by Spiking Neural Networks in Netlogo

PMCID: 5700240
PMID: 29213189
DOI: 10.1007/s00521-016-2398-1

[…] ntific community in different disciplines, including neuroscience, computer science, cognitive science, physics and mathematics. This has lead to the development of tools (e.g. GENESIS [], NEURON [], SNNAP []) for the simulation and study of neuronal dynamics ranging from phenomenological models to the more sophisticated and biologically accurate Hodgkin-and-Huxley-based [] and multi-compartmental […]


Semantic processing of English sentences using statistical computation based on neurophysiological models

Front Physiol
PMCID: 4460779
PMID: 26106331
DOI: 10.3389/fphys.2015.00135

[…] onal model simulates the divergence projection of the verb neuronal network (step 6 of the MAYA Semantic Technique). The default values from the Simulator for Neuronal Networks and Action Potentials (SNNAP) software from the University of Texas Health Science Center was used for the network. […]


From Biology to Mathematical Models and Back: Teaching Modeling to Biology Students, and Biology to Math and Engineering Students

PMCID: 2931672
PMID: 20810957
DOI: 10.1187/cbe.10-03-0022

[…] MOS ( make it possible for users to set up sophisticated and complex models of biological molecules. Neural modeling packages such as NEURON (, SNNAP (, or GENESIS ( make it possible for users to set up complex models of individual neurons, small neural circuits, or large biologica […]


Octopamine increases the excitability of neurons in the snail feeding system by modulation of inward sodium current but not outward potassium currents

BMC Neurosci
PMCID: 1351263
PMID: 16332252
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2202-6-70

[…] netically separate components) and a transient outward current as well as the inward current. The architecture of this model resembles those devised by Connor & Stevens [] and those implemented using SNNAP []. As with these models it generates typical voltage clamp currents, a stable resting and action potential, which resemble the B1 data in shape and size. When positive current is applied, the d […]
