Dear NEST developer,
I would like to initialize a network with neurons and connections and then
run many simulations with it. It would be great if I could build the
network one time and then deepcopy (or something similar) for each
simulation. Is something like this possible?
Dear nest developer,
Is there a pre-implemented nest model
allowing multiplicative aggregation of compartments/dendritic branches.
I am looking for a model that will allow
multiplicative aggregation of two dendritic branches at the soma.
I very much appreciate any support provided.
To use the NEST-Simluator in an interactive installation, I would need to
1) have access to the spike in the network in realtime, and
2) send signals (spikes) to neurons in the simulation in realtime.
For 1), I could imagine writing the spike-times to a file and then reading that file while the simulation is running. However, I currently don’t see an option for 2). Then I heard that you are actually working on module that would enable realtime I/O-access. Is that the case? And, if so, is there a timeline?

Dear NEST Developers!
Best of seasons greetings to everyone! Since many people will not be
available today we will skip the video conference. Our next regular
meeting will be on January 6th.
Merry Christmas to everyone! Enjoy the last days of 2019 and have a nice
Looking forward to seeing all of you again in 2020!
Dear NEST Users,
We are happy to announce that the NEST Conference 2020 will again be held on NMBU's beautiful campus in Ås, Norway on
29 / 30 June 2020
followed by a NEST Hackathon until 3 July. More information will follow in a few weeks.
Save the date & see you in the summer!

Dear simulation enthusiasts,
The group in Pavia is preparing an event around CEREBELLUM MODELLING, in which you can see NEST and other simulators put to use on larger scale. It will be a nice occasion to meet with many other users, exchange experience and learn about model construction. Egidio, Claudia, Simona and team are organising this as a hackathon:
Hackathon on CEREBELLUM MODELLING
13-15 January 2020, in Pavia.
If you are interested in joining, please drop Simona Tritto an email:firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>
You can find the program attached.

I am currently using nest.ResetNetwork() with to_file option and when I
reset the network, seemingly it also deletes everything recorded so far by
connected probes (spike detector, for instance).
Any suggestions on how to avoid the deletion of previously written data on
