I am new to developing NEST neuron models. I am aware I should use NEST-ML
and I started that way, but I now need to modify the (successfully)
generated C++ code. To do so, I would like to understand the details of the
C++ implementation, including the overall logic of the class NEST-ML
created (what is the functionality of the methods and attributes). Where
can I find documentation about this? I would also like to take a look at
the description of the NEST C++ developers library. I could not find these
aspects in the Nest Developer Space. Thank you in advance.
Dear NEST Users & Developers!
I would like to invite you to our next fortnightly Open NEST Developer
Video Conference today
Monday 07 December, 11.30-12.30 CET (UTC+1).
In the Project team round, a contact person of each team will give a
short statement summarizing ongoing work in the team and cross-cutting
points that need discussion among the teams. The remainder of the
meeting we would go into a more in-depth discussion of topics that came
up on the mailing list or that are suggested by the teams.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
We use a virtual conference room provided by DFN (Deutsches Forschungsnetz).
You can use the web client to connect. We however encourage everyone to
use a headset for better audio quality or even a proper video
conferencing system (see below) or software when available.
* Visit https://conf.dfn.de/webapp/conference/97938800
* Enter your name and allow your browser to use camera and microphone
* The conference does not need a PIN to join, just click join and you're in.
In case you see a dfnconf logo and the phrase "Auf den
Meetingveranstalter warten", just be patient, the meeting host needs to
join first (a voice will tell you).
How to log in with a video conferencing system, depends on you VC system
- Using the H.323 protocol (eg Polycom): vc.dfn.net##97938800 or
- Using the SIP protocol:firstname.lastname@example.org
- By telephone: +49-30-200-97938800
For those who do not have a video conference system or suitable
software, Polycom provides a pretty good free app for iOS and Android,
so you can join from your tablet (Polycom RealPresence Mobile, available
from AppStore/PlayStore). Note that firewalls may interfere with
videoconferencing in various and sometimes confusing ways.

Hi all - I'm aiming to run simulations using Izhikevich's neuron model (or another efficient model with spike generation), two dendritic compartments, two glutamate receptor subtypes, and temporal synaptic dynamics. My understanding is that Nest supports the Izhikevich neuron model with instantaneous current injection (i.e. no synaptic dynamics), the iaf_cond_alpha_mc neuron model for multiple compartments, the aeif_cond_alpha_multisynapse model for multiple receptor subtypes, and any of the _psc_ or _cond_ neuron models for synaptic dynamics. Am I looking at multiple choice here? I.e. I can't use a single neuron model with all of these features? If so, does anyone know of any Nest add-ons that efficiently handle all the features above? I'd be grateful for any advice.
The Computational Neuroscience Group at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (www.nmbu.no<http://www.nmbu.no/>) aims to recruit a technical editor in a senior engineer position.

Dear all,I am running a large simulation where I need to evaluate the spike frequency of large populations in several elapsed time frames. In order to keep this procedure efficient and memory efficient, is it possible to reset the spikeDetector (delete all events)?Thanks in advance!Best,Benedikt
