neuron spiking in mouse primary visual cortex

made with VND

Experimental techniques continue to provide neuroscientists with structural and functional data on neurons at a rapidly increasing level of detail; biophysically-detailed brain models and simulations can provide integrated understanding of neuronal structures, connectivity, and function. Visual Neuronal Dynamics (VND) is award-winning software for 3D visualization and exploration of neuronal models and simulations. The software is produced by the Center, in collaboration with Allen Institute, and is compatible with the Brain Modeling Toolkit (BMTK). In addition to readily visualizing models at multiple scales, neuron firings can be animated showing how "lightning storms" travel through the brain. Advanced visualization techniques help the viewer make sense of the dense neuronal thicket. The latest VND release includes flexible browsing and selection of neuron attributes, GUI improvements with information about neurons, and a refined line-only viewing mode.

The Future of Biomolecular Modeling

A 2015 TCBG Symposium brought together scientists from across the Midwest to brainstorm about what's on the horizon for computational modeling. See a summary of what these experts foresee. Read more

NAMD History: The Drama

In the 1980s Klaus Schulten let two students build him a supercomputer. This risky project, and a 1990s student revolt, led to NAMD. Now with 50,000 users worldwide, this article charts the colorful history of NAMD. By Lisa Pollack. Read more
