Under the Hood



The following sections contain details on the construction of the cells and circuits in the canonical template model (comprised of layered cortical columns) as well as exogenous driving inputs. Each section details the parameters that can currently be adjusted for the user’s hypothesis testing needs. If there are parameters you would like to be able to adjust but cannot, we encourage you to submit suggestions to our users forum.

Neurons: Morphology and Physiology

Network Architecture and Synaptic Connectivity

Exogenous Driving Inputs: Evoked and Rhythmic

Exogenous Driving Inputs: Tonic / Noisy
